Our three days of snow on Whidbey have run parallel with Brad's three days on the Whanganui River. We stomp through white powder as he paddles white water. The contrasts, over the same three days, are fun to imagine. Cold here; warm there. Snowing and cloudy here; sunny and clear there. Winter here; summer there.
Later today our weather is expected to change from snow to rain and Brad will be leaving the river to hike again. Life, back to normal for us on Whidbey and Brad on the Te Araroa Trail.
