Although I hadn’t expected a snowstorm in late April, it had its upside after the storm when I wandered around the campground with my camera. What struck me as most interesting weren’t the wide vistas with white fields and tall trees but the branches heavy with snow.
The snow outlined bare branches on this tree, with ice beneath the branches as the snow melted then froze.
And some branches can hold more snow than others! This almost looks like a balancing act, there is so much weight on each of the thin branches.
By Sunday morning, the snow was melting quickly and the green sprouts on the trees were stretching towards the weak sunlight. By Sunday night, most of the snow was gone, and only memories remained.
“The snow itself is lonely or, if you prefer, self-sufficient. There is no other time when the whole world seems composed of one thing and one thing only.”
