Dark Meets Light

Same day, same storm as seen in my previous post. Summer-like weather ever since. This was the best spot I could find to capture these great heavy clouds against the fresh white snow.
The last couple of years, we've had one last bit of snow around Mother's Day, so we'll see what happens this year.  All I know for sure is that we will NOT be planting the vegetable garden before June.. we made the mistake of putting the veggies in in May last year, and ended up starting all over again in June, because of a week of below-freezing nights that killed almost everything.

Nice contrast. Is there a pine beetle problem? I suspect to see more snow here also.

Hi Gaelyn:
Yes, in fact we had a real bad bark beetle problem 3-4 years ago.. the forest was just full of dead trees. Most have fallen or been cut by now and recently the moisture has been back to normal, so things are a lot better. Also this is just at the lower edge of the forest where the trees give way to bushes anyway.
