After a good snowy winter the San Juans can hold snow way into August. 100F and you look at snow :D
It is quiet a wild swing from Winter to Summer, 120 F. I don't think there is many places in the US that have it anually.
If you do your western trip, Valley of the Gods, the Goosnecks of the San Juan River are a must. Not many tourists go there, but it gives you a outstanding impression of the land, or South West. The lush green of the mountains and the harsh but colourful desert. I used to outfit in that area. The biggest surprise for my customers was 1 small Canyon in Valley of the Gods. Stone desert with those gigantic monuments, 120 F and than a spring fed cool pool with lots of wild life.
Kristal clear water.
Don't miss Archer close to Moab, crowded but worth the trip.
Mesa Verde is not to bad either, I am spoilt by the cities of Central and South America, of the same time period and being European and the stuff that was built there.
The Anasazi are a little bit a example for us in the West. They founded their big towns during a time of plenty of moisture, but than got hit by a 600 year drought, just when their culture started to peak, or amounted to something.
The South West got settled during a period of more than plenty of moisture, the Land were the Honey flows.
It seams to me, we see the same change as the Anasazi experienced, drought has become the new normal.



It is pretty cool to see the cyclical nature of Earth's past. It is always in such a state of change.There really is only a few coastal areas that remain pretty constant.

I will look into and read up on your suggested places to visit. They sound nice! Thank you.

I think it is a little time for a update.
Our last polar bomb is now 3 weeks in the past. It got a little brisk outside for a week. I had minus 30 C at the farm, with a rather refreshing breeze peeking at 60kmh.
I had a hard time with my fishpond to preventing freezing solid. But the stock tanker heater did the job.
Now it feels like spring. It rained a bunch last week, with occasional snow, 15mm moisture, which is a lot for us. We have not had any rain like that for 5 years or so.
The rain washed the snow away.
In my green house the potatoes are doing rather good. I have the first strawberries and one of my citrus is starting to bloom. In the wintergarden my seedlings are coming rather good.
My farm, with its people, animals and plants is a place of tranquility, while the world around it goes just nuts.
