  4. Your streams haven’t iced over yet either, I see. It looks like you’ve got just about the same amount of snow that we do here.

    • The photo is actually from last December, Allen, but it captured the essence of the day….and, right now, there are likely a couple of feet of snow on the ground at this particular spot up in the canyon….we’ve had quite a bit of the white stuff already. I read last week that we’re already close to 70-80% of what we usually get for in a year. That’s going to make for some wonderful Spring run-off viewing in a few months. 🙂

  5. That cold, clear water and the white clinging snow…..what a beautiful contrast, Scott., and a square format always does it for me.
