Postcard: Skiing Above the Clouds

Skiing, still. Some days I just want to move on with my year. Others, I cannot resist the frozen white beckoning. Of course, it helps that the water is melting out of the snowpack, finally, leaving us with a surface as smooth as marble to schuss down from the gusty alpine into the warm green world below. This photo was taken June 6 in Park County, Colorado, a mile south of the Continental Divide, where about 60 inches of snow fell during the month of May.
