April is a beguiling month. When I lived in Montana, it was my least favorite month of the year — Mother Nature would tease with a sunny day, then dump a foot of snow on you the next. And it wasn’t “useful” snow (the kind you can go ski and play in), it was just sloppy, wet, and messy. Now that I’m living in Los Angeles, April has edged its way back into my favor. . . the flowers are all in gorgeous bloom, the sky is blue, sun is shining and the temperature is a perfect 68 degrees during the day, but still cooling at night enough to wear a cozy sweater.
For this month’s Fine Art Friday installment, I’m paying homage to my Montana days, with a snowy scene! At the beginning of April, my family ventured to the Sierra’s and did some skiing in Mammoth Lakes. Early April proved perfect for skiing (thankfully!) and my family headed up a cross country ski trail to Minaret Vista. We enjoyed sweeping views, feeling on top of the world!
