Record setting snow is finally giving way to sunshine and birdsong.
“I think that’ll last until May,” I mused a month ago of the snow mountain the neighbors and I had piled between our driveways. A few weeks over 40°F, though, and the mountain has become a mole hill.
Idaho Transportation Department highway cameras show a persistent blanket of snow to the north so we decide we’ll enjoy sunshine on trails we left unexplored in Jump Creek Canyon. I confirm through the Highway 95 camera south of Marsing that the hills there are snow free.
