When the clouds lifted earlier this week, there was new snow on Excursion Ridge and beyond. Its mostly gone from the ridge now, but the mountains on the other side of X-Inlet are almost covered.
Van left on the high tide for Juneau this afternoon. I walked down to the beach from the boat harbor after dropping him off and painted this. Some clouds covered the ridge while I was painting so lost the tree pattern. The cottonwoods have turned to a rich gold now since the freeze on Tuesday.
