Returning to the Alps

Stuart Fork of the Trinity Alps meets Trinity Lake. CA 2011

 The lakes are something which you are unprepared for; they lie up so high, exposed to the light, and the forest is diminished to a fine fringe on their edges, with here and there a blue mountain, like amethyst jewels set around some jewel of the first water, – so anterior, so superior, to all the changes that are to take place on their shores, even now civil and refined, and fair as they can ever be. 

-Henry David Thoreau-


Frosty is Free:

None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.
-Henry David Thoreau-

Frosty is Free

He is old-school strong with a running engine but his drive is jammed.

 (much like his owner!)

He hopes to have a few good winters left.

Creatures of the Yard:

Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
