is the start of Spring, well, it is sort of. But the day itself signifies the change from winter to spring. We can still get some snow storms but we will also see the great thaw with the crocus and tulips emerging from a long winters nap. Spring also signals the return of our resident summer birds. The Osprey love the Florida river and the trout that inhabit the water. Their striking calls as they swirl around the river at heights that would make most of us faint. To watch an Osprey swoop down, talons outstretched, and grab a fish is spectacular. Once the fish is caught they rotate it for a more aerodynamic flight. They are such smart birds. Mike was able to witness while fishing in a different manner! The Osprey came down, grabbed the fish and took off over his head. Mike could touch the fish as it flew overhead. Guess these mighty birds don’t know the rules around O-Bar-O. It’s catch and release only!
How many of you are spring skiers? That would be me. I love those bluebird days, warm temperatures and soft snow. I can just cruise down the slopes taking in the incredible views and the sun. Durango Mountain is one of the best spring skiing resorts for someone like me, a fair weather skier! Purgatory always has plenty of spring time activities to engage you. Spring is just around the corner so don’t delay in booking your spring skiing trip. OBO cabins is ready and waiting your arrival! Happy skiing.
Oh, Don’t forget to wear your green on St. Paddy’s Day. If not one of those Leprechauns might have to pinch you!
