Then, a small snowstorm moved into the area. We've had so little snow this season that I was enamored with seeing Lab Valley in white! This is the Lone Ponderosa where we buried the ashes of our departed pups. It is such a special part of Lab Valley. I find this towering tree to be inspiring.
In National Forest near Lab Valley, there are serene places to ride my fat bike. No other humans had been out but a bobcat and a coyote pair had wandered this forest road before me. Further down the road, I ran into moose tracks in the fresh snow.
Living in a peaceful and beautiful place means so much to me.
