The seasonal changes allow time for recognizing & differing prior ways, but none more than spring. The wilderness is reborn with new delicate plant life, trees regain their proud coats of needles & leaves & the rivers are baptized back to flowing bodies, from the consistent rain showers. One constant to keep in mind at all times, is that change is always occurring. Whether it's happening before your eyes, or in some far distant lands. Change is life's only unfounded but unbroken promise. It's entirely special when a particular change is for the better, but unfortunately not so common. I find that relics & signs of the spring season lay in the basket of winter's end. From a most recent camping experience with good friends, I documented some of those notes & reminders of Spring's short arrival.
