It is not unusual in the mountains to have winter finally give way to summer with hardly a day of spring in between. The mountains are never more beautiful than they are in June.
It seems like everything turns green overnight from grassy meadows to new aspen leaves; even the new growth on pines, spruces and Douglas fir are green. The ponderosa pines that have appeared almost black all winter are washed clean by the spring rains and new growth is starting at every branch tip. They suddenly appear to be alive and they are in bloom.
