What's that white stuff falling from the sky?

We arrived at The Ascent to a warm welcome from Logan, Kaya the Mountain Dog and the Bourland’s. We had a relaxing evening visiting with everyone and getting a tour of the facilities. Their condo is beautiful, and has some great amenities, including a shuffleboard table in the common room. Looking forward to some major shuffleboard tournaments!
We are on our way to my very first white Christmas! We met Julie and Noah in the Denver airport and, after picking up our rental car, headed west on I-70 to Beaver Creek. Per the Bourland's recommendation we pulled off in Idaho Springs to find some lunch. After driving up and down the main street – Colorado Boulevard – we settled on barbecue. Whata great decision! Smokin Yard’s BBQ was some of the best pulled pork I’ve ever eaten. It’s a couple of hours drive from Denver to Beaver Creek, and on the way we experienced SNOW!!! It actually started snowing, big fat flakes falling from the sky. I was pretty excited. The other thing we noticed, and remember we’re from Houston & Phoenix so this is NOT the norm for us, were the frozen waterfalls. That was pretty impressive.
