A Spring Day in January

On a beautiful January day, Betsy, Jeff, Sam, Alex and I took a trip into winter. Clear warm days in January are rare, so we took advantage to hike up into the melting snow of Vitosha, right in our backyard. Though bursts of raincloud made for some dramatic light at first, they soon dissipated and we enjoyed distant views down to Lake Iskur and the Rila mountains from a windy, sunny plateau. We'll savor this one until spring...

Rain bursts threatened early...

...but cleared later.

especially liked the fluffy little hillocks and the solitary tree. I wish I had a hija. JM
