And where the wind is blowing, beauty abounds. The mountains caught fire on Tuesday as fresh snow clinging to the upper elevation canopy was stirred by steady gusts of wind and set aglow by the setting sun. We’ve rarely seen such an amazing display of snow-fire… (Click on the thumbnail below for a larger view. Thx!)
