Spring is in the air with a lot of cold winds blowing off the high mountain snow lately. These can create huge dust clouds that blow off the mud flats and through the Stehekin Landing where the boat docks. These are not the most pleasant moments but they are a harbinger of warmer days.

The "Mud Flats" are sometimes mistaken for "low-tide" in the spring when the lake is down.

These warmer days melt the snow and we usually have a few worrisome days, as we did last week when a thunder and lightning storm came through and caused a few creeks to spill over their banks.

It all works out in the end.
