New background image (may be) coming soon.

Snow is falling on Red Canyon, but the webcam I've previously cadged images from is currently blocked with snow or ice hanging across the lens guard. Hopefully that will be gone before the snow on the canyon wall is.

Update, about two and a half hours later: The preferred camera is back up but still mostly obscured. In the partially obscured view on another camera that shows part of the canyon wall it appears the snow was pretty heavy there too.

I think I'll look around for a good snow pic from the larger vicinity to use until Red Canyon has the balance of cover and uncover that I've been hoping for.

Update, Friday afternoon: Got the pic I wanted, thanks to the ice falling off the camera and a bit of the snow on the canyon wall melting away. I may replace it in a few days as more canyon wall shows through. Meanwhile, enjoy.

Update, Sunday afternoon: The melt-off has commenced and the current pic, though still snowy, looks a bit sad to someone who's seen months of snowpack disappear in mere days in interior Alaska. I won't inflict it on you. Snowmen, to your safe spaces!
