as though Spring herself had arrived

Sunday's gloriously sunny day attracted many climbers and hikers to my paese;  they flocked in as though Spring herself had arrived.  I'm afraid that Old Man Winter isn't done visiting just yet as there is a chance of snow in the forecast for later this week.

I can see this section of the rock right outside of my bedroom window.
How many climbers can you count in the image?  (You can click on it to enlarge it a bit.)

I found fifteen.


  1. It was snowing lightly here in the morning (and on Friday, before the beautiful weekend!). Your house is just under that cliff??

  2. I don't live directly under it -- more like across the street from the houses that sit under it.

  3. Okay, I keep spotting more and more. First I found seven, then nine, now twelve. You found fifteen? I'm going to have to look again.

    This post is just a little too addictive!

  4. Photoshop's zoom revealed them to me. . .
