Another Biggish Work

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Taken last year at Yosemite… This year we are not going to the snow. There are some resorts open that are making artificial snow, and a few high peaks may have snow left from last year. But there has been no snow this season. None anywhere. Look up at the miracle of the falling snow,—the […]
