  • Warm weather brings buds on narrow-leaf cottonwoods

    What a remarkable day this has been. It is only March, but the temperature soared to 72 degrees in Denver, and it feels like spring.
    The sky is mostly blue, and the willows along Bear Creek area dressed in their brilliant spring orange-yellow. The buds of the narrow-leaf cottonwood are swelling. The sticky bud scales are giving color to the otherwise bare crown. As the buds swell, the crown appears to start to fill in or thicken even though there is not yet a true leaf in sight.

  • Evergreen catches breaks to top Bear Creek

    It would be safe to say that the bounces definitely went Evergreen’s way in this one.

    “It was all thanks to my teammate Kylee Russell. She headed it perfectly over and I got on it perfectly and ended up scoring off the rebound,” Petrik said.
