  • In Colorado: Wind get an expansive collection of coniferous wind from winter forests high in the 14ers. Hear the soothing roar of leafless Aspens peacefully swaying and emotive squeals from half-fallen trees stuggling to stay vertical. Hear blustery 75 mph gusts whipping by snow covered 4000 meter peaks. Hear the austere emptiness of forests hushed by the great white acoustic dampener and deep droning gusts through long-needled Ponderosas pines.  
  • This library offers a large collection of temperate forest wind. The extremely long needles of Ponderosas make the deepest, most buttery smooth wind. I want to build a cabin in the middle of a grove of Ponderosas and wake up to the wondrous sound of those needles each morning. I hope you enjoy the sounds of weather in the high country of Colorado. Thanks for listening.
