Spring Snow

While the sun and calm winds of Oct. 25 warranted the first lake dip of the season, the banks of the high camp jewel were still spotted with snow and the surface had not long ago been covered in ice. The month of October has seen the the valley floor slowly turn from beaten brown to green, though the trees on high- buds at the ready- have been waiting out the vernal snows that have gently laiden the mountain tops in white dress every 10 days or so.
Some days after setting up our high camp, we woke to this winter wonderland. While it only lasted hours, it was the stillest of mornings.
