Big Springs Road, February 29, 2020

The unseasonably warm and dry weather made me think about late spring patchskiing in what should be the middle of winter. My wife Michele and I took our dogs Penny and Zooey on a recon mission up Big Springs Road.

After looking at our possible destinations, we settled on the north patch of Dome Two.

Stev looking over at the Distant Sisters in the Sweetwater Mountain Range. I might use this for my next album cover photo. It has a song titled Distant Sisters.

We are looking forward to Mother Nature bringing back more winter and snow to make for bigger snow patches this spring, summer, and autumn.
