Spring and snow, they go together during these months in the mountains. We have warm beautiful days of sunshine to draw you out of your house for a hike on the next trail. And then we have the snow moving in on some afternoons. The snow will hydrate those spring flowers, berries, and trees and may settle you inside your house with great weather to snuggle up to a book or magazine. Spring is bringing out visitors of a wild four-legged kind and the snow is tamping down the dry roads and trails.

Businesses and non-profit entities are currently gearing up for the year of events. Creede's Elk Lodge is making their plans for the Annual Mother's Day Breakfast, The Creede Arts Council is preparing for their National Small Print Show happening during Taste of Creede over Memorial Day Weekend. The Chamber is working on the Silver Chef Competition, Artists Quick Draw, and more that's happening over Memorial Day Weekend! This year we will feature Peggy Morgan Stenmark as our artist! Peggy will do a mini-show, talk and Q & A at 4:15pm Saturday during the National Small Print Show, so be sure to come make your lodging reservations today.
