It has been a cold spring in the high country, with flowers and berries slow to come out. Last week the leaves on the aspen were just coming out and the willows at the center just look kind of fuzzy, with their new growth just starting. It has been such a slow spring that bears waking up from hibernation found nothing to eat and have had run ins with people in their search for food. It was 90 last weekend and will be 90 again this weekend here in the Denver area and warm in the high country. So maybe we'll see some more plant growth in the mountains in the next couple of weeks.
