Haven't posted photos of Ridgway in a while so here's a few after the snow Sunday night. We got from 6-12". The great thing I love about living here is everything's within walking distance. I walk 3-6 miles a day, every day. And one thing I learned since this is my second winter here, is to appreciate summer more.

Gorgeous photos!
I have seen a bit of snow in Ridgway- once on Memorial Day, once on July 4 (when vacationing at the former San Juan Guest Ranch on County 23). Quite a sight at that time of year!
Looks like someone plows/clears the river walk and all. Must be grand to get out there in the sun.
I'm getting Ridgway antsy- coming in July!

The Town plows the walking sidewalk better than the city streets!

Not near enough snow on the ground, though. Water content doesn't look great, either.

Just a fact. This winter's snow is next summer's water. We've painted ourselves in such a corner with water demand becuase of excessive growth in this region that we really can't afford a dry winter, anymore.
