Mt Rosalie Wears Venus' Belt
Venus’ Belt on Mt Rosalie These pictures were taken over two days...the first morning you can see that Mt. Rosalie's Glacier Gouge has been windswept. The following morning you can see it has snowed. The beautiful pink color of the sunrise is called Venus' Belt. It also happens at sunset. It is truly one of my favorite colors. Finally, the picture of the path from my front door doesn't really give good depth perception. I'm taking the photo from the shoveled out space in front of my front door which slopes upwards and took a day to shovel out. You can't tell how deep the snow is but on the low side 3 feet and the high side 4 ft. Sinking into the snow felt luscious but made for some difficult maneuvering. Groceries! in hand while sinking 2 ft into soft or crusty snow depending on the snow falling and the wind blowing was an amazing thing. The footprints you see here were gone in an hour...50 mph winds. Amazing and awe inspiring and ferocious!
