Re-FRESH-ing

Celebrate the first day of Spring, the Vernal Equinox. Cosmically, there is a lot going on as described in this article excerpt by the Washington Post.

At 6:45 p.m. EDT on March 20, the sun appears directly overhead at Earth’s equator, marking the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. This year, the spring equinox has the unusual distinction of coinciding with both a supermoon and a total solar eclipse. According to timeanddate.com, there has not been a solar eclipse on either the March or September equinox since 1662!

The spring equinox is one of only two days of the year when all places on Earth (outside the polar regions) see the sun rise at due east and set at due west along the horizon.  (Washington Post, March 20, 2015).

The Weekly Photo Challenge is all about FRESH this week. In the photo above, the icy freshness of the river running through the campground in Tuolumne Meadows, in the high country of Yosemite, nearly froze our feet as we tested the water. This photo was taken in July, 2011 when the Sierras experienced record snow and rain, filling the rivers and lakes to capacity. To visit Tuolumne Meadows, you must wait until late June to be able to drive through Tioga Pass on Hwy 120.

For good measure, I had to add two flower photos from my yard.

  1. Meanwhile I’m enjoying the briskness of Autumn creeping into our mornings. It still gets ridiculously hot and humid during the day, but at least we get a few good hours of respectable temperatures in there first. 🙂

  3. Terri, your first shot reminds me of vacations where we stopped to put our feet in a rushing stream in the mountains…and almost froze them off. But it was definitely refreshing!
