It was a cool, crisp April morning as we walked into Paint Mines State Park in El Paso County, Colorado. Snow still covered the top of the canyon. We explored the pink and yellow rocks that provided Native Americans with pigments for their ceremonies and paintings. As the sun rose over the rim of the small canyon, the snow melted, bringing the pigments along with it in the age-old process of water eroding the earth. Our path turned into a small stream, with colors blending as they flowed, sparkling in the sun.
