The Big Melt

We are warming up! And it’s really a long awaited, very much appreciated change of temperature.

Lots of water.

You can see from the photo that we had a lot of snow, but it’s melting so fast that we now have mini-lakes and streams everywhere. Bring your waders!

The sun has some real power (and our days are long: more than 15 hours at this point) and it won’t be long before the leaves burst through.

Gotta love that blue!

Happy mid-week. 🙂

I love this snow sculpture! Very endearing.

Bear love. Bare love? 😉

In this area, we have brown and black bears, but you have to go much farther north to the Arctic to see the white polar bears.

Climate change has lead to some of the polar bears mating with grizzly bears and producing a sort of blond hybrid called a grolar.

Happy Friday; happy weekend. 🙂
