Color Sunday sees lots of gray

The first of two color Sundays kicked off Sunday morning at Powderhorn Resort.

The annual event is usually a great way to see the changing autumn colors at their best, but Sunday’s most prominent color was gray.

Cloudy skies, cold temperatures, and rain showers put ski lift rides on hold.

Add to it, rain showers and cold temperatures made hiking less than desirable, but the lodge, with live music and hot food became quite popular.

But it wasn't all bad news, some children enjoyed splashing in the puddles and the brave still ventured out to see the trees shrouded in clouds.

If you got rained on, or missed the event, you’ll get a second chance at a bright and sunny Color Sunday, next week Sunday, Sept. 27.

The entire scenic by-way, from Mesa to Cedaredge, will also be celebrating the event.
