Spring has finally come



the snow has finally melted in most places...tho it remains in the trees shadows and gullys...with the snow melt comes "breakup"...the logging companies shut down while the snow melts and the forest soils dry up...this is the best time to travel the logging into the "bush...this is exactly where my friend and i headed on friday...with lunch of apples, cookies, chicken and coke...cameras in hand we headed out....






...


road repair on the logging roads will start soon...the gravel pits are open and dry at this time of the year...they provide endless opportunities for photos... as always want to make my pebbles similar shapes and sizes when quilting...i took photos so i can do studies of rocks in my sketchbook... to work on getting more variation in shape and size.






the day was chilly and windy...several years ago a fire moved through this area leaving the forest burnt...the wind moving blowing through the trees created errie noises...
