Texture of the Season

Gallatin National ForestThe snow line is distorted by the deep vertical grooves along the dramatic slopes of the Rocky Mountains within the Gallatin National Forest. Winter seems so interminable at their peaks that the presence of snow fails to signal the season…instead we judge the change of season by the depth of these grooves…deep and dark snow filled crevices in Summer, smoothly spackled ridges of glossy snow in Winter…The texture tells the season in these young hills while below we wait for the snow line to advance across the plains.
