Gonna post early!
Lynnette Kraft usually does a "Wednesday Walk" of some memories, remembrances, looks at the past. And i usually get 'round to it late on Wednesday when it is already Thursday in the Eastern parts of the country. So i'm going to get a jump on it now.
Last year we had a very late snow the end of May. I've mentioned it before because the heavy freeze that went with it killed all the apples on our tree & we have lamented that ever since!
On 2 June last year we were headed down the hill & stopped to take this pic. I wanted to record how much snow was still on the mountain on that date. These are not our near mountains. You go over (around, actually) Sugarloaf mountain & look across the valley to see this.
Anyway, we went down yesterday 1 June, & we stopped to get this pic 'cause i wanted to compare. Here it is. We haven't had snow now since early April, i think. I believe this to be about the same spot as last year. The angle isn't quite the same.
There we have it, this year & last. Kind of boring, but i guess it's interesting to me! :)
Ah, i just realized i didn't explain - we drive by this every week. It is on our route down the hill to work. We only see this view when going down, because when coming home it is behind us. :)
