Artist's Description

THIS is where I had no business being. Right after this shot, I sunk so far so fast I almost created yellow snow. I was wearing boots that were tied as tightly as possible so I didn’t think I’d lose one in the deep; I thought I might need to leave a leg or two. Snow is just plain devious and you really need to be smarter than it is all the time. The expression “dumb as dirt” doesn’t apply to snow. Snow knows when you’re walking on it and it let’s you get places. Then it gets all “snowy-like” and won’t let you get back. I didn’t sink on the way in so how could I sink on the way out??? Did I get fatter after taking some pretty shots? Do digital shots actually weigh something? I suppose they have to because there’s something there that wasn’t there before, right? If so, I took one too many shots because Mr. Tricky Snow decided to take a grab at me when I took some out that I didn’t bring in.

Another thing I didn’t think about: snow doesn’t stay all pretty and white cuz stuff falls in it all the time. Pine needles, branches, leaves, cones and all sorts of debris totally mess up the uniform whiteness. I was rather disappointed to find the pretty stuff wasn’t in the prettiest locations and the best locations looked a lot like this with forest freckles frequently fouling them up. (Don’t try to say that three times quickly and blame ME when someone slaps you!) I guess you have to be there before the snow starts playing catch and the only way THAT’S gonna happen is if it just fell and didn’t drag something off the trees on the way down. How people get pristine snowy forest shots is beyond me unless that P-Shop the heck out of them.

Anyway, I did live up to this point and this is the Upper Bear River from a spot slightly below the road to drive into the area. That road was PACKED with cars and trucks with trailers for snowmobiles that were constantly rumbling by sounding like huge motorcycles with a lot of metal tires. I can see why they get banned all over the place, between the noise, the smell of exhaust, and the marvelous tracks they made.

I do wonder how many trailers went home empty when Mr. Tricky Snow decided he wanted to make an example of one snowmobile to express annoyance with them all. I know I shouldn’t laugh but THAT would be HELLA funny. :-D
