Spring Creek in late summer

As usual for this time of year, the bed of Spring Creek in the TeePee/Spring Creek Roadless Area is dry at the trail head, but cold, robust and cascading down it’s canyon just a mile up the trail.

With overcast skies today and a threat of rain, I was going to devote the day to doing things around the house, but in early afternoon I couldn’t keep from taking a little outing. It was a nice surprise that when I visited this small mountain lake up in the Cabinet Mountains there was a short break in the clouds, just long enough to take a few pictures.

West from Baldy

West from Baldy

While contemplating a hike next week I was looking over some photos taken there a number of years ago and noticed this one taken on October 9, 2013 that I had never published. A storm was just sweeping in from the south but a window remained looking out over the clouds that filled the valley toward the west.

It’s not spring… yet

In contrast to two days ago on a sunny ridge where the buttercups were in bloom and a temperature of 50º, this morning’s landscape looks quite different with a temperature of 11º (F) and a blanket of new snow.

Islands in a sea of clouds ~ Another visit to Corona Divide

Today a friend and I visited the Corona Divide one last time before the weather conditions that create these scenes subsides and found that today there were islands in the sea of clouds.
