A Look At Colorado's Wide Open Spaces
The weather was auspiciously cooperative. More than a few times the sky began to rumble and look tumultuous. A few rain drops fell while we were commuting but blue skies and fluffy clouds greeted us when we got off the bus.
A rural girl at heart, I was pleasantly surprised how quickly the landscape changed from urban to pastoral.
Our garden tours took place in the Colorado Piedmont area of the Great Plains region of Colorado. This area is sandwiched between the Front Range and the Southern Rocky Mountains.
Although the Denver area only gets an average 14 inches of rain a year we saw surprisingly lush landscapes and gardens in full bloom.
Cattle ranches and farms enjoy dreamy unobstructed views of the rugged landscape. This cultivated area is Colorado living at its best. Can you imagine waking up everyday to these views? The mountain range as your backyard providing an ever changing view and adventure.
