In search of warmth and color

Went down into the mountain pass to see the rushing river and how Spring is progressing.

Found the colors a little too subtle.

No tadpoles yet.

Heading out of the pass, and seeing this, it occurred to me that it is perhaps time to take a pilgrimage south to survey Spring's unfolding. 

Beautiful, but I feel the need for warm sunshine.  The Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park is calling.

Wanee bound!
