Spring and the Snowmelt

The last time I was on this particular trail, the Little Cottonwood, it was packed with more than a foot of snow…and when I occasionally stepped off the trail proper (the snow trail that had been packed-down by the hikers who had gone before me), I often sank past my knee into the cold white stuff.  While I enjoy the snow and the cold of winter, it was refreshing to behold the new green of the waking forest.  On today’s hike, I wandered up and down trails that I had never seen and was lured deeper into the forest by the sounds of rushing water.  I was rewarded for my exploration by finding streams coming down the mountains in the most random and unexpected places.  I later returned to the main trail and found myself walking in the rain along the rushing river of snowmelt that comes from the many dozens of feet of snow that has fallen during this past winter and early spring.  Enjoy….

    • I agree, John…springtime green is a magical color…so much promise and hope within the verdant hues. I will look forward to the photos you made last evening…I’m sure they will be wonderful.

      The photos are from a beautiful place, too…I took them in Little Cottonwood Canyon, the same place that was in yesterday’s post…different perspective, but the same comforting place.

      Thank you for your nice words, John…I’m still learning the technicalities of the image making, so I appreciate the feedback.
