Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another. - John Muir Wind sculpted snow as viewed from the Symphony chair lift at Whistler Mountain.

“...the endless repetition of an ordinary miracle.” ― Orhan Pamuk, Snow An icy cold front moved into Denver today, bringing with it the tiniest crystal snowflakes you can imagine.  The flakes were so soft and light that the slightest puff of breath would send them scattering about.  These aren't snowman-making snowflakes for sure.  But they are the makings...
