Walking in a Winter Wonderland

April Snow

The snow was falling hard earlier today on campus.

We still have snow, and quite a bit of it at that. I am absolutely ready to see some color again. The hardest part for me this winter has been the lack of color. The pines are all this grayish-brown color that makes me feel a little comatose a lot of the time. We had some pretty afternoon light on the mountains though, so we all took a break to go out and enjoy it, take some pictures and breath some real air.

Viewing

Manbharat, Alex and Jason all at the overlook in front of our building.

Landing

It was overcast and snowy by us, but 80 miles to the south the Sun shone down on the Alaska Range. Luckily the air was clear enough that we could see it!
