Wind and Light

Sunday was a beautiful day -- also one of the last days before the Great Midwinter Melt of '09. I headed out to the Tech Trails, specifically the part which is actually the Houghton High School Forest. The forest has no ski trails, so I was all on my own. Along the way, I found this snowbank which had developed from the strong winds and heavy snowfall that we'd had recently. Now, it's all gone -- I actually saw some grass the other day! The midwinter thaw will be done soon, and I won't mind that a bit.
