Satiny Mountains

    One of the signs of spring we see in the Robson Valley when the weather warms enough for the snow on the mountains to begin to melt, is a change in appearance of that snow.  When melting begins the snow begins to shine like satin.  I noticed that yesterday as the temperatures climbed to 23C (72F).  The photos shows that satiny effect on the Cariboo Mountains.
    This has been an amazingly early spring for us, weeks ahead of what is normal.  Yesterday I saw my first butterfly of the season and this morning as Skye and I walked around the pond, there was a robin in a tree.
