Week 5: Just like Spring!

As promised, here is a photo of the mountain turning green. The bottommost layer is a fine fuzz of green grasses and wildflowers. Above that, the brush--bursage, brittle bush, and creosote--are all coming out with their leaves, filling in the space around the perennial spots of green, the cacti.

Unfortunately, all this green is being helped along by a hot sun. I will (grudgingly) accept the arrival of shorts weather in March, but for the remaining 13 days in February, I want to be able to take a morning hike in pants and a t-shirt without overheating.

Please, send over some sun and warmness! We have still tons of snow and -10° C - ish here in Finland. I have had enough!
