Cranes feed in a hay meadow near Hayden Monday, March 28, 2022. The return of the birds to the Yampa Valley is a sure sign that spring has arrived — or at least until the next winter-like snow storm.

Shane Hopkins, 17, enjoys the spring weather at Bear River Skate Park on Thursday, March 31. He was one of more than a dozen young men at the park that had to walk over pallets, snow and a sled to avoid the mud and reach the concrete surface. Many expressed a desire to have a proper path to the park rather than walking thorugh the mud, which limits their grip on the board and makes using the facility slightly more of a hassle.
