Sharing my adventures in the Colorado mountains in the summer, and beautiful Ft. Worth Texas in the winter.

When the early settlers came here, to this small town in western Colorado. back in the early 1900's they planted a fast growing tree. The Cottonwood.
The roads down in town are lined with these magnificent trees. In the Spring though the pollen from this tree. is like white cotton floating through the air, and plays havoc with my allergies. The also have a life span and they are starting to fall.
A gust of wind during a thunderstorm last week brought this one down. They are lucky it didn't come down on the house...or cars going down the street.
Only thing it did was take out part of the fence. They have talked about cutting them all down. Last year one did go through the roof of a house. Of course there are folks that also to not want this to happen. It would be a shame to lose them all.
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
