Springtime according to the calendar. We had 15 inches of snow today butÂ at this time of the year it doesn’t melt, it metamorphoses–to mud. It’s axle deep on our road right now as we enter the fifth season common to the mountains, Mud Season. It’s a little challengeÂ but we love it. We don’t wantÂ the snow to depart too fast as we need it to keep the river, and fishing, great. So far, so great.
