Yesterday, Luna and I took a drive in the forest to scout for our Christmas tree outing. There is almost no snow which is odd for this time of year. We have a spot where we’ve found trees for many years but it all burned in one of the summer wildfires so I was looking for green trees in that general vicinity. Fortunately much of the area on the river side of the road did not burn so we should be able to find a nice Douglas fir when we head out with our Christmas tree permit. And hopefully we will get a little snow before then.

In the meantime, here are some photos of the river.

I had a nice walk near the confluence of the Twisp and Methow Rivers last week. New snow blanketed the ground and the sun was shining brightly. Fortunately I remembered to bring some filters.

Spring runoff is in full swing right now with some rivers out of their banks. Here in the Methow, most places are pretty safe but other watersheds are not so lucky. The water has not quite peaked so it could get worse before it gets better. Lots of snow in the mountains and warm weather this month have contributed to this. It is amazing to watch the rivers and streams and waterfalls and hear the power in the flowing water.
