When the snow melts...a month earlier than it should...the landscape in the valley areas is really drab! There is a lot of tan and brown. This image is one I photographed on a drive through a wildlife refuge 25 miles from home. The wildlife that hang out here tend to be the large bird type: we saw two pairs of geese on the ground and two bald eagles high in trees too far away for even the long lens. I need a change of scenery!
