Grabbed a precious weekend day on the Front Range between storms for a snowshoe hike in the Wild Basin area of Rocky Mountain National Park. In a few places the North St. Vrain Creek was flowing water, as above, but the falls were mostly snowed in still. The weather was partly sunny and partly blizzard.
