Spring Snow at Ginty Creek

Upper Klinaklini ValleyOn 17th, we had another gorgeous day.  Gorgeous days can be counted on the fingers of one hand this winter so they are extra-precious.  Here is a view from the north bluff, looking past Finger Peak down the Klinaklini River Valley.

But today it has snowed all day.

  1. Hi Chris, Am really enjoying your new website and keeping everyone updated on your progress and surroundings. Mom, Emma Young, will be 100 this July and I keep her updated with what you are doing. Thank you for all of your postings. Betsy

  2. I wish I had the cold-tolerance of a chickadee! Your pictures are lovely, but I think I should have chosen to be born in a country with no snow!
