My plans for Earth Day consisted mostly of a short hike in Shenandoah. I expected light rain and hoped to hike a couple of miles to some waterfalls. What I got was a rain that quickly turned into a steady blowing wet snow that painted spring's emerging leaves and woods in several inches of snow. Skyline Drive was closed and so I hiked. About 9 miles. Hours of quiet and only the gentle sound of flying snow in an empty woods. If doctors could create such conditions I think a lot more people could be healed. These 30 images are a little of what I saw and a lot of what I felt.
