Greetings! Spring has finally arrived in the Rockies! The first flowers are blooming, the grass is green in Grand Lake and the lake ice has almost completely melted. Nature is bursting at the seams as it prepares to give us an exceptional show of flowers and greenery this summer.
Snow was at 142% of average snow-pack in mid-April so our little Tonahutu Creek will be a raging river and the dams will fill quickly to full capacity.
If you haven’t already planned your Spring, Summer and Fall holidays, now is the time to start. We are filling up quickly for summer.
We look forward to serving you!
