This year we can drive pretty far up in the Crazies without running into snow. That would be worrisome except all indications are that the snowpack is doing just fine.
February is the best month here for angle of the sun. The alpenglow hits the mountains every night at dusk.
It's nicest on an evening like this with no wind, but you can definitely see the evidence that it has been blowing.
The lengthening days are the best harbinger of spring.
It was completely dark when I finished painting and so beautiful. I made a promise to myself that I would go back and paint the night soon.
