Bolt of the Day #1993

I’m staying in Lake Tahoe this weekend – just in time to catch the very end of winter. It’s been several years since I’ve seen snow, so it was wonderful to ride over the mountains and see silken floes of milky snow cover the slopes. I’ll be missing out on snowboarding this year, though, and our lakeside cabin hasn’t even enough snow to build an army of snow-goons.

Down by the water, between piles of rocks perfect for skipping, I found this last bolt of icy snow, a crowd of snowflakes still huddling for cold. The lake was quiet, rippling gently, but less than an hour waves were building, creeping up the rocky shore. It may be that Tahoe has already claimed this bolt; perhaps no more will replace it until next winter.
