My boots made their impression on the untouched snow. A single trail of footprints led toward Myrtle Point. The clouds had cleared but there was still enough moisture in the sky for a full palette of color. I settled into a heath bush, hiding from the wind. I waited patiently as the sun continued to paint.
In full view now, the sun began on the snow covered exposure at my feet. Light hues of purple deepened as the artist brushed my little patch of heaven. Smiling, I peeked around my shoulder to see what other projects were at work. A pastel masterpiece was in progress. Watch and learn I thought - watch and learn.
Humbled and happy, I traced my footprints back home.
