The time from when the ski areas close until the summer crowds arrive is the quiet time. I can go to the store and get right through the checkout. When I have to make that terrible left turn onto Highway 9 I do not have to wait for traffic. The ice is still on the reservoir so the fishermen and the boaters are still getting their lawns ready in Denver. It is just me and the migratory birds looking around and waiting and listening to the silence of the day.
