RV trip, day 5: Rainy Rockies

Back in Las Cruces I dreamed about days like this: Low, thick clouds obscuring the mountains and soaking the region with rain showers. We're so dry in the desert, a rainy day is a treat.

Rain is what we have today in the Rockies. It played havoc with our picture-taking but not with our enjoyment as we drove through tiny Leadville and up to Vail, marveling at how much snow (and snowmelt) we could see in June. In some of the photos it's hard to tell where the mountains end and the sky begins. But that just means we'll have to come back another time.
