Kopje Creek Cabin: Spring in the High Country

Wild flowers: Dozens of small early spring wild flowers have appeared at our 8,500 ft elevation cabin. Pasqueflowers, buttercups, forget-me-nots, bistorts, daisy fleabanes, phlox, barrel cactus and many others, despite the fact that we still have snow drifts in the creek bottom over 10 ft deep!

Homemade lasagna sunset dinner, still deep snow in the creek bottom…..
