snow + dirt =snirt! (v 2.1)

Windblown snow and black dirt combined to make what is locally known as "snirt". Changes in wind velocity and direction have moved and carved the snirt into interesting patterns. I love this stuff.

 

Found and photographed on an overcast day alongside hwy 281 in NE Rolette County, ND.
