Willow Burst

This variety of willow (that I’m not entirely sure of…) is one of my favorite early spring “poppers”. Its tight catkins burst into fireworks-like explosions of fuzzy yellow wonderfulness.

The willows along our neighbor’s fenceline are popping! I caught this trio in between rain showers this afternoon.

The water is running in Fargo Brook as the snow melts at higher elevations. A slow shutter speed captures some interesting textures.

Bert’s Crown is a rocky knob above the Camel’s Hump Nordic center. I’d never climbed to the top of it before, so decided to give it a try this morning. It was a bit of a scramble, but I was rewarded by a stunning view!

Robin & I enjoyed a fine day of skiing up at Craftsbury Outdoor Center yesterday. The ample sunshine and soft spring conditions made for wonderful skiing. I’m always stuck, when traveling through the Northeast Kingdom, how different the landscape is from our neck of the woods here in Huntington.
