Heather and I have lived in Colorado since 1981. We moved here from Southern California for a better quality of life. We lived in Manitou Springs for over 20 years and then moved to our home in the Black Forest in 2001. We live on 14+ acres in the forest and it suits us. It is generally very quite and we can see the stars at night.

This is the rear of our house in the summer time.
h2
Flowers in the spring time.
h3
Our buddy Nitetime (rest his soul) hanging out on the deck with the flowers.
h4
Spring flowers. You can see some black netting that we use to keep the deer out. Without the netting they will eat everything we plant.
h5
Crocus
h6
A fly agaric mushroom (amanita muscaria). Some years after a lot of rain we will have thousands of mushrooms sprout around the house.
h7
Summer in full bloom.
h8
We have plenty of wildlife in our back yard. Black squirrels with tufted ears like this little guy, lots of  deer, birds, coyotes and even bear.

Here is a view of the front of our house in the winter.  Most winters we have very little snow. 2006 was an exception.
h9
Here is our deck during the blizzard of 2006. The drifts were five feet deep on the deck.
h10
Here I am with my snow blower trying to get my stuck truck out. The snow was pretty deep at this point.
h11
This is a more typical winter snow, an inch or less.
h12
During one storm we were stuck at our house for 10 straight days. I had to work from home because I couldn't get to work. One day Heather and I went cross country skiing down the streets since they hadn't been plowed.  Those are our ski tracks down the middle of the road.
