Along the San Miguel

Winter in the San Juans

Along the San Miguel,
rock-studded slopes of P-J
& Ponderosa get hot mid-day.

Even with winter’s bite, snow
melts off, though it’s too cold
for new growth. Just

last year’s hardy perennials
scratching out roots in the
Dakota sandstone, Gambel

oak & leaf litter. But it’s
a tolerable kind of cold. Just
about sunny enough to roll up

your shirtsleeves. Even if
your forearms get goosebumps
with each passing cloud.
