Great Changes Reverberating into Rivers — Tuesday, May 23, 2023

We drove up to the Uncompahgre Plateau

To see the great changes of

Snow turning into Melt and then on to our river (The Gunnison River)

We drove to the top passing huge streams of imperial melted snow heading down, down down

Not only is the melt occurring fast, but the water is also

moving downhill in a huge HUGE rush

The snow is changing

and reverberating into a world of


And huge muddy ponds

Finally, we made it to the top

At the gravel pit lake, the earth was in a state of hushed concentration called MELT!

Everywhere one looked it was Winter turning to Spring.

Sorta like February turning into March

Patiently. Steadily. Snow into water.

Water into that life-giving force we all use.

Well, there you have it.  The Roubioux and Cottonwood Rivers; sources of roaring water—- flowing into the Gunnison River.  (Then on to the Colorado River)
