The snow at my feet suddenly started flying. I was trudging in bright sunlight through Glacier National Park with a friend in late February. Then I realized that it wasn’t the snow but a pair of Ptarmigan invisible against a glaring white background who took off as we approached. Yes, the disruption was startling, but we both responded with silent smiles. Who would break the quiet of a wintry day? more

In recent years, some readers have taken to tearing pages from our magazine, and putting them in plastic sleeves in loose-leaf notebooks so they don’t wear out from use. more
