Rain Sleet or Shine

In an attempt to escape the grueling winter, and the boredom attached, my boyfriend and I decided to take a drive South.  The day started off gorgeous, and the late spring has blossomed into wildflower season on the open ranges.  The goal was Strawberry Reservoir in the Uinta National Forest - around 50 miles out.  Along the way, we drove through farm country and saw all the baby animals frolicking in the fields.  Horses, cows, goats and sheep are some the main attractions.  We were living it up, but little did we know that a hellish snow  was waiting for us at the reservoir.

So, this is the Strawberry Reservoir just past Daniel's Summit around 8250' elevation.  This was the first vantage point of the water, so we pulled over immediately.  Good thing too, because the wind was fierce, the air was murky with billowing storm clouds and around two minutes after we left, a crazy hurricane of snow stirred up.  This is just an example of how crazy our season has been here.  Our snow in the mountains has yet to melt, and the floods and mud are already starting.  I don't think that we're going to have a true summer until July or August.  In the meantime, I'll keep rambling around the state chasing the sunshine.
