Colorado Gets Snow on First Day of Summer

Summer? What Summer?

Just as most of the country welcomed the summer solstice with open arms, snow began to fall on Friday, June 21st, just west of Denver at elevations above 7,000 feet.

Steamboat Springs saw a whopping 20 inches of snow on Friday, and a winter weather advisory was in effect until Sunday morning, as snowfall was expected to continue.

Anthony Quintano, a Colorado based photographer, captured these snowy scenes near Rabbit Ears Pass.

The last time the city saw snow this late was on June 17, 1928.
