Bernerelite Is Now For Mountain Living Homes and Real Estate From Coast To Coast
Colorado to North Carolina: Once I saw mountains as a young child a mystery came to life. I grew up in a very flat place- Florida and had never seen a mountain except in pictures. It was hard to imagine people’s houses nestled among the peaks and valleys like in the book Heidi or something in a far away land. Our own country seems almost indelibly supported by its mountain regions even where they are not seen. In the west, the snow pack in Colorado supports life throughout everything to its left side all the way to the coast. Millions of communities, real estate, houses and people are supported by the mere existence of the hundreds of miles of snowpack.
Aurora Water (Colorado) – Aurora’s water supply is derived primarily from the South Platte, the Colorado and the Arkansas river basins. Snow melt is the primary source of this water, so regular monitoring of the snowpack is critical to resource planning. Follow our crew based out of Otero Pump Station in Buena Vista, Colorado, as they travel deep into the wilderness near Homestake Reservoir in Eagle County to measure the snow depth and water content. Special precautions must be taken due to the extremity of the terrain, including avalanche beacons.
