Looking up the next-to-last slope with my back to the very steep last slope I posted a photograph of a couple days ago. The sun was shining bright on the far side of the Genesee River gorge off to my left, but not here.

Those roots have many moods.

Nice composition! Would you consider that a lot of snow?

Thanks! Depends on what one is comparing it to. Compared to the bare ground we have today, yes. Compared to times when snowshoes are required, no. :D

I used to live in Ketchikan, Alaska. Trust me on this, that is NOT a lot of snow.

Flew Army UH-1H helicopters out of Fort Richardson, AK back in the 1970. Had one trip to Yakatat down toward southeastern. It snowed a foot overnight and folks looked out their windows in the morning and said, "Oh, it snowed last night."

Ketchikan is the word's northernmost rainforest, so when it snows, it doesn't stop. A foot? By the end of winter, we had over 30 feet. Some of it would melt off, but still, you would be walking down the sidewalk in downtown Ketchikan, in places that were away from the streets, with walls of snow on either side of you that were way over your head.
