The snow began quietly, a few big flakes drifting ahead of themselves on the wind. They struck face or sleeve or rock and fell away without clinging. Other flakes followed, smaller but just as dry, crunching like powder underfoot, as likely to be blown away from the rock as onto it. They diffused what was left of the light rather than obscuring it, so that Piedro was in effect walking in a narrow gorge again, between a dark wall of rock and a smoother wall of dim violet moonlight. But only one of them would support him if he stumbled and fell against it.
