On the edge of winter

On the edge of winter

Photographed in the Cherry Peak roadless area in the Coeur d’Alene Mountains of western Montana on October 4, 2007.



  1. I think that’s what I enjoy most about living in the mountains. Weather in layers. In a short hike at different altitudes you can embrace several seasons.

  2. That’s true. This morning I can see up into near the are where this photo was taken, and it’s very white there today.

  3. I have to agree with both of you – one of my favorite things to watch is the snow moving slowly down the mountains in my area (elev. 6000, next day elev. 5500, next day elev. 4500 etc….) This is the only area I’ve ever lived where I can genuinely predict when there will be snow on my front porch. It’s really an exciting event to watch. This is a pretty photo – the little tree looks about as hardy as they come.

  4. I like that, too. Some years it just walks down the mountains. This year it has snowed and melted a dozen times on the high ridges, which is nice to watch all by itself. This morning I hunted just below the snow line where there were just a few small patches left over from last week. Still not ready for its march down into the balleys yet.

  6. There’s just so many beautiful things out there wherever one goes. I know you’d love it here!
