Shedding Winter, and Standing Proud Wild

After a particularly brutal winter in Turnagain Arm she stands tall and proud wild.
She is shedding the coat that allowed her to survive,
and will have to grow a new one when freezup comes again in three to four months.
Proud wild is not like our pride, it is not arrogant nor self indulgent,
but a posture of an absolute commitment to a dignified survival in a wild and harsh environment.
