lightly

in relatively small amounts
or in low density; sparingly.

Some images which fit the moody theme.

The first indication that it was snowing was when

our coach driver alerted us to this sight…

…as we approached the

Columbia Icefield

and the

Athabasca Glacier.

Having never sighted falling snow previously

many of us were not sure if this fall would

be labeled heavy, light or somewhere inbetween.

 

To walk on a freshly, fallen silent shroud of snow

(just had to use that line 🙂 )

was the highlight of the day.

I would say it was falling lightly simply because

it was comfortable out and about.

The only time it was uncomfortable was

when my feet decided to hurry downhill

without telling the rest of me.

I was left behind on my behind.

Certainly a memorable experience.
