Since I was traveling during winter months to Colorado, I really wanted to get a picture of trees that were bare. I have never seen all seasons before, winter being one of them I've never truly experienced. Living in the hot climates I'm from (Houston, Dallas, Phoenix, etc.), you only experience summer and then what many people would call a mild winter. I wouldn't say it's mild, but my friends in Michigan or Colorado would disagree. :)
Now that I'm back in Houston, you can't even tell it was winter in other places. It's sunny, 73 degrees Fahrenheit and really pleasant. We're about to take a walk actually! I'd take this weather over what my friends are experiencing in Denver, CO (36 degrees Fahrenheit right now!).
