Cold nights and Variable Days
With an average low of around 30 degrees and an average high around 70 degrees, April is still a little nippy at night…

Carpet of Green
April, 2005
We have received over 30 inches of rain in the last year, and 25 inches of snow. The meadow is showing the payoff in the carpet of green grass growing.

Good Grazing
April, 2005.
The cattle have been keeping the vegetation mowed pretty well. We don’t expect the green to last more than another month, but it is nice to have it right now.

Nearby Pond
April, 2005.
Someone put a pond in a little ways south of us. We hiked over to have a look. It looks like it was pretty full, but has probably soaked in, as the soil isn’t very dense there.

Another rainstorm moving in.

Little Yellow Flowers
April, 2005
These were growing all over the mountainsides. We don’t know what they are, but they sure are pretty.
