2497 to Glacier Creek (2512)
Morning fog with sun peaking through. Damp with rain. Spirits soar.
|A fleeting glimpse of the sun through the fog, Jan climbs through false hellebore and anenome over the pass.|
|Clouds rolling over mountains. This peak was only visible for a few moments before it was cloaked again in whiteness.|
|Spring, summer, and fall happening simultaneously in the high country- monkeyflower, laurel, gentian, daisies, lousewort and gentian|
Jan wants clear skies, warm sun, and wide open view. She is getting frustrated with all the weather we are having. I share that sentiment sometimes, but when the clouds are actively moving around, I love the mystery, the hope and waiting and drama. Will the clouds shift? What do the peaks look like? Watching the holes in clouds reveal huge mountains seems so exciting, even if we can't see them entirely.
No lakes today so I missed swimming. Streams were running milky with glacial runoff but couldn't find a safe swimming hole where I wouldn't risk being swept away.
|Glacial runnoff makes for milky streams|
