As Spring Begins

As spring begins snow still blankets the landscape. Yet it is not mid-winter snow. Transformed by wind and sun and then the cold of night this was a day to wander along and enjoy the season before it’s gone.

Wind and sun and even more wind have given this snow covered hill a dune like quality.

On this day the wind blew strong yet the sun was warm as we made our way along the trail and softening the thin veil of clouds along the distant horizon line.

Streams began to flow some exposed and running free while others were still hidden beneath a blanket of snow.

A seasons long drift formed what we called the ear.

Have a wonderful weekend.
