One of the things I enjoy watching in May, is the opening of Aspen and Birch leaves slowly moving up the mountain slopes as the temperatures in the upper elevations begin to warm. You can see by the gradation of green from bottom to the top in the photo, where the Robson Valley is right now. I truly love the light green color of the leaves when they first open in the spring. The combination of the light green leaves, the darker blue slopes of the mountains, topped off by the bright whiteness of the alpine snow, and blue skies are a joy to see.
