Over the Memorial Day weekend we went out to visit my dad who lives just outside Denver.  On Memorial Day we went to Estes Park and drove up on Trail Ridge Road which is the highest continous road in the continental US, I believe.  Due to the tremendous record snowfall the area received this past winter, the road was not open all the way to the summit and we could only go two thirds of the way.  As we traveled up the road we drove into clouds, then rain and finally snow flurries!  It was the first time these Floridians had seen snow falling in some time.  The temperature dropped about 30 degrees from the start of Trail Ridge to the highest point we could drive to.

I just had to scrap this picture of my dad taken along the can tell that it was cold and blustery, can't you? I used sketch #23 from Frosted Designs, the border punch was from my friend Sue and everything else is just from my stash. I have also linked this page up to Paper Issues where their theme this time is "Tree Hugger".
