POTD: Turn, Turn, Turn

Turn, Turn, Turn
Brooks Lake, Wyoming
2011

I heard temperatures have been over 100 degrees in some parts of the country the last couple of days. But at 9,000 feet in the Wind River range, it got down to 22 degrees Friday morning producing a large amount of frost on leaves that while still green aren’t going to be for long. I remember about 30 years ago spending a long Alaska winter night in a tent when it got down to some 30 below zero. By comparison, Friday’s 22 degrees seems quite balmy but is still about as daring as I care to get these days. I’m not saying I couldn’t still survive a colder night without some sort of heater, just that I don’t want to have to. Must be getting old.

  1. Love the B & W image! Can’t imagine 30 below zero – can’t even imagine 22 degrees! We live in one of those parts of the country where it’s still 100 degrees – over 70 days with 100+ degree temps this summer. But a cool front is coming in – only supposed to be 98 tomorrow!
