This image is almost monochromatic, i.e. black and white. I shows what the snow looks like when you get out into the canyons and the mountains. The temperature was about 15 degrees Fahrenheit and there was no wind. I was surprised that the stream was not entirely frozen over, but it hadn't been that cold for very many days and it may yet freeze. The beauty of the snow and the way the snow covers the rocks and trees almost overcomes the fact that you are cold and potentially wet. I don't survive well at this temperature, but once my hands go numb, it doesn't bother me as much.
