Yeay!!! More moisture!!!!
I'm sure everyone that fishes the region is well aware, but the entire southern Rockies just got pounded again!!! The Front Range of Colorado saw almost a foot of "wet" snow. I assume the interior mountains saw more. This will equate to about a full inch of precipitation. I hope to goodness this is the storm that will put us close to normal for the year. I can see it now - the forest managers will be taking down the NO FIRES IN THE BACKCOUNTRY signs down at the trailheads.
I hiked the Walker Ranch Loop (South Boulder Creek) yesterday and the day started beautifully - temps in the 60's and little wind. By the time I made it back to my car at sundown, there was an inch of snow on the ground and it was accumulating quickly.
