My Side of the Mountain

Until very recently, the sun had not shone on these slopes since sometime in mid-autumn.  Even if the negative temperatures don’t signal change, spring truly is in the air. Since December 21 of last year, the amount of daylight has literally doubled and we are gaining in leaps and bounds from now until summer, when the pendulum of light will begin to swing the other way again.  With the cold, clear skies we’ve had, the evening light on Eagle Peak and surrounding mountains has been pristine.
