Day 32- From Blue Sky to Graupel

Historic buildings on the edge of Ghost Ranch
Portrait and I left Ghost Ranch right when breakfast was starting. I could have stayed in the library's leather club chair reading things all morning, but Portrait always wakes up with itchy feet in town.
How do you know you are hiking closer to Colorado? By all the aspen groves...
And by the storms.  It's hard to see here, but it started to graupel--or snow pellets.  We've been having almost daily storms lately, and many of them include graupel. 
Hazardous to public use, but perfectly good for walking on.  We camped just off the road in a nice grassy spot under a tree with day light to spare.
