The Roar of Snow Melt

Today we went up to our Lakes Basin to check out the waterfall. This is a shot from above the falls down onto Twin Lakes. Our little town is just below the lakes, less than ten minute drive.
We are getting some amazing cloud formations.Pooh Bear would be busy if he were here today. Big puffy white clouds that go on and on. This is a close up shot of the clouds above the hill that is in the background of the next shot.
Our Valley is pretty green today. ;-)
The sound of the waterfall is amazing... a roar. I bet the campers are loving it. The sounds of a rushing waterfall while you drift of to sleep. SMACK! sorry, mosquito woke me up! ;0)
To the right of this sweet little cabin there is still snow

Here is a shot of the snow and the waterfall side by side.
Strange don't you think?

I have a thing for colorful boats... they are so charming.
The mosquitoes buzzing up my nose are NOT!
The sky is a brilliant clear blue.
I think that little cloud looks like a baby bird... on a turtle's back... being chased by a pig.
Watch out for horses and tourists!
This lake looks more and more like a lake on the moon, if they had lakes on the moon, due to a little CO2 problem from the volcano. The trees here at Horseshoe Lake are dying.
It didn't look like this when I was a kid.
We still have quite a lot of snow in our mountains and you know...
they are still skiing at the resort!

I am sending you all a cool mountain breeze. :-)

Wow -- you live in such a gorgeous place! Is the snow still there? We could sure use a cool breeze today!
