  alpine meadow
by zrim

Millions of years ago this alpine meadow was covered by a sheet of ice 2000 feet thick. That is the same depth of some of the deepest icefields on earth in places such as Greenland. To this day the Tuolumne Meadow is covered by ice and snow six months of the year. In the summer when the snow has melted (around the end of June beginning of July) this meadow is covered with wildflowers--a sight that I do intend to see one day. But for now, I will take solace in the muted russet colored views of autumn. Very beautiful in its own right.
