Colorado Rain.....Finally
Photo Location: Loveland, CO 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 07-09-2012, 07:39 AM

Torrential rains the last couple of days in Rocky Mountain NP, lets hope it ends the drought and fires for the rest of the year.
A photo of fallen leaves caused by the drought, now covered by rainwater. Ironic.

Glad to hear it, doubly so since I will be in that neck of the woods next week. You've been getting around lately!

I think all that rain is running down the river here in the campground, but they got a lot of rain in the mountains.

weather is supposed to warm up again, we are headed to Wyoming in the am where temps are to be in the low 90's. Hope you have a nice trip and can take some pics of the areas.

It's funny Dave, seems like every place we travel they complain about being in a drought and then they complain when it is raining.

Tom, I think all the big fires in Colorado are 100% contained at this time.

i'll tell you Tess, this is the first puddle I have seen in quite a long time being from the desert, so tomorrow we are headed to Wyoming and then Montana in search of more puddle photos. Glad you liked the shots from Colorado.
