I think a picture is worth a thousand words when it comes to describing exactly how windy it was this day. But still, I'll use words too: it was very windy. Of course, I'm not complaining. It made for some great pictures of the snow being blown and lifted off the faces of these mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. By the time we had gotten higher, the wind died down a little and the sun shone out, illuminated the ice and trees very nicely.
