Life is full of amazing contrasts. An early spring storm means meadowlarks scrambling for cover while my snowshoes get another shot at the mesa above my home. With a tester pair of Baffin ATTACK boots strapped to my 22" Atlas shoes, the climbs are fast in the 12"-24" blanket resting on rocks and cacti underneath. Sun and temporary whiteouts take turns as the contrasts make for constant clothing adjustments along with moment-by-moment wonderment.
