Long Days Ahead

"To the Setting Sun" - a springtime view from the surface of the Mendenhall Glacier

Watching my heavy breaths float into the air as I hiked yesterday afternoon reminded me that summer (at least in terms of temperatures) is still a long ways off. On the other hand, walking back to the car after nine o’clock without the aide of artificial light signals that we’ve left another winter behind. The above photograph was made at about half past seven (still a full hour before sunset).
