Snow in the Mountains



Tom's brother, Jim, has arrived safely back home yesterday. Here is one of the photos we took while exploring the snowy mountains near here. The Spring run-off is exciting to see. Where, last summer, there were no streams exist now many streams...some quiet and some roaring with whitewater. We went as far up the mountain as we could in our 4WD vehicle and then could go no further as the road was covered with ice and snow. On our way down the mountain, we found this stream with the snow drifts covering part of it. I discovered, to my chagrin, that the stream ran underneath the snow and when I tromped over the drift to get the perfect angle for the photo my leg sunk straight down in to the water! Who knew?! Anyway, I got my camera dried off first, before worrying about my wet pants leg and all was well.

More to come....

Came over from another blog.
Death Valley is on my list:)

Do I have your consent to copy your pic of the giant Argentinean cactus? When you visit my blog (2nd page is Art Notes) you'll see that I'm an artist too.
Love flowers, but I never tried my hand at flowers for a cactus! Please let me know, thanks!
