A few more images of the comet dropping right between the summits of Mt. Meeker and Long's Peak on 14 Mar 2013.
It began snowing in the eastern foothills of the Rockies in the wee hours of Saturday, and continued steadily until late afternoon, when the sky began to clear over the Continental Divide:
Sunday morning broke bright and calm, without a cloud anywhere to be seen. A perfect day to climb into the snowy forest.
Nine more days until Spring!
Cool. Calm. Quiet.
