Happy New Year!

As 2011 ends and the next calendar year begins, I'm reminded that as impressive as many of the human-created celebrations and spectacles are, the ones provided by the natural world will put us in our places.

Fireworks pale in comparison. How can we compete with this?

See, I told you winter trees were wonderful!

Wishing everybody a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012!
