CAMPAIGN: VISION House at Mariposa Meadows


The swollen rivers are a telltale sign that spring has come to the Colorado Rockies. As the cold chill of winter reluctantly loosens its grip on the high country, milder weather moves in, resurrecting the landscape’s vitality that had been dormant during the darker months.

Signs of change are everywhere. Clumps of shaggy winter coats lay strewn across the hillside. Fresh claw marks on trees as furry hunters prepare their paws for a much anticipated springtime feast. Mothers of all kinds patiently and gently guiding their young in the essential ways of survival. Colorful flowers bursting open to greet the brilliant summer sunshine. And most striking of all—the rushing abundance of life-giving water, everywhere.

At this time of year, water oozes from the very mountain itself, streaming out of rocks and crevasses as packed snow transforms to liquid, bringing sustenance to everything it touches. Moss swathes babbling brooks and seasonal springs. Bowls and basins that remain hopelessly dry in other seasons leap to life, joyfully overflowing with the gush of water.

Spring is an enchanting time in the mountains, with no place more so than our very own Mariposa Meadows as it masterfully manifests the age-old story of water and sunshine—essential elements that make magical ecosystems.
