Quinn's Clouds at Drowsy Water Ranch


Lucky for us, (he, he, get it with the picture above?) we get to see some beautiful clouds in our Colorado skies. Quinn, our employee for the summer, got some great shots. Now if only I was smart enough to tell you what type of cloud is in each photo. I'm pretty sure a fifth grader could do it, but not me! And, if you like these pictures or want to see more of Quinn's summer photos (They're incredible!) Contact him at quinn.w.wilson@gmail.com

Here are a few storm clouds (cumulonimbus?) passing over the trail by first point. Many of our rides will depart in clear skies only to have these guys rumble by--sometimes the just threaten, sometimes they pour.
This looks like a cloud smorgasbord. You have a little of everything. Status, cirrus, cumulus, etc.

One of the best times of day for cloud watching is early morning and dusk--the pink and oranges are beautiful. And, finally, we have maybe some altostratus passing by?

We were just wondering if you have already snow and saw all these lovely pictures (I must contact Quinn to see more) which reminded us what a lovely place DWR is. We still talk so much about our time there and look at the lovely photos we had from the breakfast ride and the river rafting (and our own). Well if not half of North London turns up sooner or later after my descriptions...
Love to all from all Pfeiffers

Howdy Pfeiffers!
Thanks for commenting on the blog and spreading the word on DWR to the UK. We have some snow at the ranch but not very much yet. Still waiting for a big storm to come through- it seems all the snow is falling in Denver and not the mountains yet.

Happy Holidays and we hope to see you again in the future!
