After what seems like months of grey skies and rain and snow we are finally getting good weather. I've spent the day grading so Robbie and I took a break and drove down into the coulees for a walk. It was wonderful down there and after a while I was wishing I had left one layer in the van. The bridge over the river is the highest, longest of this kind, or something like that. It looks pretty dramatic against a blue sky. I took my sketch book too but it was blowing enough and my pile of grading is still high enough that I decided not to linger.
