Video ID: es2033 Title: Winter, Platte River, Colorado Location: Colorado, Summit County

Fresh snowfall is seen blowing off the high mountain ridges into a pure blue sky while melting snow at lower elevations is beginning the annual spring melt.

During the sequence, night surface ice melts as the river's flow increases.

The view up the Platte River valley, a classic landscape, is accented by the appearance of high cirrus clouds at the end of the sequence.

The sound of water and occasional gusts of wind persist throughout.
