Featured Photo: Swirls of Snow (Aspen, Colorado)

Snow fields linger into the summer months in Aspen, Colorado. The Lost Man Loop on Independence Gap has enough elevation change to give the hiker (and photographer) contrasting views of stark rock swirled with snow as well as flowered alpine meadows laced by streams of the frigid melt off.

Photo from June 2012.

Winter can be a rough ride for an outdoor lover who goes numb in freezing temperatures! Whispers of warmer seasons past and yet-to-be can help less enthusiastic winter dwellers weather the temporary chill and appreciate the architecture of a bared woods. This photo, taken last winter on a seasonally-vacated mountain bike trail, is an encouragement to bundle up and search out the beauty in a frozen afternoon.

I did my first snowy trail run at yesterday and have officially plunged into yet another Ohio winter. Sensation has returned to my toes; acclimation is complete.
