Spring and pink flamingos were in the air. Actually, the pink flamingos were on the ground. Some were the plastic type occupying the front yards of people with a sense of cheese or a sense of humor; others were human types with feathered costumes imitating the long-legged birds.

The occasion was Flamingo Days, the last day of the season at the Mission Ridge ski area, April 13. Pink flamingos (the plastic type) hidden around the mountain had value, and skiers who found these treasures could cash them in to collect a prize. Prizes for returned flamingos ranged from candy bars to clothes to a pass for the 2014-15 ski season. Not a bad bargain for bagging a bird.
