Torrey Creek along the valley floor finally catches the full force of the sun as it breaks over the eastern moraine ridge filling the whole valley in light.
Yes. Spring is slow in coming to the Upper country. It will be another month befor trees will leaf out. The willows in some protected areas are now budding out. That Pussywillow stage that my sisters as kids used to love going out to collect. They would cut the branches and use them as table top center pieces. We always knew that was a sign of coming spring.


  1. Wow, I don't think I want to live in the desert any more, I am moving. Great Pics!!

  2. Very beautiful picture. Am I able to use this picture to paint or do you prefer that I don't. I am not a professional by any means, just learning and really for my own pleasure. Please e-mail me at and let me know. Thank you!
