Recently we went to the Rocky Mountains. I had never gone there before. They are different than the Smoky Mountains. When enjoying scenery, different than before experienced is good.
We arrived at Denver, already thousands of feet high, on Wednesday, May 8. The weather was cold, with temperatures near forty degrees Fahrenheit. The sky was overcast, and a light mist was falling.
During the night the precipitation changed from rain to rain and snow. The snow was light and did not accumulate in the heart of Denver, but away from the center of the city some snow stuck to rooftops and trees.
May 9 was damp, and eventually the rain changed to sleet, albeit just a small amount. We did not do much that day except find a nice restaurant to celebrate my wife’s birthday.
This was day one of our trip.
