Yeah summer always shows up and always on time. Winter hasn't been around in two years.

You can dream about any season you want, but in the end you must take advantage of whatever the present season offers.

In those pics above, winter looks amazing.

I love the late spring/early summer when there's still white capped peaks contrasted with lush greenery below.
