Snow, snow, snow

One morning last week, we awakened to a decent overnight snowfall. The stillness of our clearing on a frozen morning with fresh snow is profound. To my surprise, my trail camera captured a photo that morning that tells the story. It's a photo of our clearing, and my snow bike with a snow-encrusted wheel is visible in the far left.
This was the week when autumn became a distant memory and winter took a strong hold on our area. Just before the snowfall in the photo above, I planted Columbine seeds in an aspen grove that is just outside the view of the trail camera. I love that gesture of hope for springtime.

That was not the only snowy day.

Shyla truly loves the snow. She even loves licking the snowflakes off her own nose!

It makes her dance with happiness.
And her happiness is infectious. So, let it snow!

  2. My first Irish Wolfhound, Meaghann, thought I had invented snow for her entertainment. I can still see her in CO, a yearling hound, trotting along in snow with her nose right down in it, then lifting her head with a tall ridge of snow balanced on her snoot. And a happy grin beneath.

  8. I know you got lots of snow and cold windy weather because we did. You have such a positive attitude about the snow and getting out in it-I need to work on mine. I'm happy to stay inside and quilt when it's really cold.
    Hope you get some answers about your spine. Have a great Sunday!
    Hugs, Noreen

  13. To steal from the poet, those woods are lovely, dark, and deep. But I must admit I'm glad it's your snow and not ours. Had quite enough of that in WI. Glad you're still able to ride through the pain.

    Glad Shyla loves the snow. She'd be a pretty miserable Rocky Mountain Girl if she didn't.
