Snow on the sage

Driving through the sage-covered hills around Gunnison yesterday, I was amazed how much snow there is. I would guess 24 inches of dense, heavy stuff covering prairie hills I don't think I've ever seen hold more than a dusting. No wonder the Division of Wildlife is feeding deer and elk in the area. They can't get through to browse.

They could go to WSC at take a "beating at Keating." That was the name of one of the dining halls when I went there. Those deer could put on the Freshman 15 in no time.
