Living at 8200 feet has both challenges and charms. This may be the ultimate test of are you a “glass half full” or “glass half empty” person. It’s a choice we can all make.
When you have a day where it’s cloudy and gray at 5300 feet (I know that sounds like high altitude to my sea level friends) but it’s bluebird sky beautiful and sunny above, you are reminded of how full the glass really is.
It may look like snow in these pictures but it is only the clouds, keeping the sun from shining at lower elevations.
