Cotton wood snow storm

Originally uploaded by cgoble72.
This was one of the most beautiful weekends we have ever had in the park. Aside from warm temperatures and a lack of wind, the highlight was the cotton wood blossom storm.

Normal winds blow cotton wood blossoms around. However a lack of wind meant that small strands of cotton were floating around at random. It was the equivalent of a light snor storm at times. Down by the police station the blooms were almost a foot deep. You could see lots of people making snowballs out of them.

In the evenings the sun rays on the blossoms combined with the fawns just coming out into the open and the lush grass from all the rain made for a spectacular day.
