Springtime in The Rockies

Cheley - 05-17-83

This photo was taken 31 years ago today at Cheley Colorado Camps as I was helping to move the camp office from Denver to Estes Park for the summer. It was May 17, 1983, and it snowed in Denver as well. (In fact, the city’s slow response to the snowfall on that day — Election Day — brought an end to the McNichol mayoralty.)

They are having a volunteer weekend up at camp today and tomorrow as they help get ready for another great summer and finish the recovery efforts from last September’s devastating flood.  I wish I could be there.
