Sun and clouds, snow and flowers

Today the short hike up the Munson Creek trail was on bare ground. Boots on the trail: what a wonderful feeling after all of the snow and ice we have had this winter! After the first mile it became winter again, but that’s OK: it’s a start!

These photos were all taken within about an hour this afternoon. The first two were taken from the Munson Creek trail head looking south toward the Coeur d’Alene Mountains in the Cherry Peak roadless area. The buttercup blossom was found a few miles further east just above the river: the buttercups are now blooming in some of the valley locations where there has been a little sun.
