Winter on the divide

There were just a few minutes of sun today on top of the divide. It was a long hike, but I was glad to be there!

    Thanks for sharing.

  8. That first dusting of snow sure looks better than spray-on stuff I see folks using on Christmas trees!

    Of course, having a good photographer handy is also part of the equation.

  9. It sure does, Malcolm. Mother Nature knows a lot more about decorating trees than we do. Nothing like the real thing!

    Thanks for the kind words, but the very best I can ever do is try to capture some of what’s there, and then don’t even approach getting it all.

  12. Were those your foot prints on the first shot (or were you following something else?) Nice clean snow shots. I am completely enamored with the way snow covers mountains and could look at such a sight all day long. Sadly, our snow levels are low these days…. I keep waiting for the big dump but so far, not much. (The good news is nights are perfect for star gazing tho.) I just have to keep saying you really have an eye for beauty.

  13. The tracks are those of deer. There were some human ones at the beginning of this trip, but they turned around after about the first mile. This spot is where the Forest Service trail crosses a very old logging road, and the animals were actually following the trail, not the road.

    We have little snow now in the valley, but the higher elevations have a lot. I haven’t heard how much though, and I can’t get up there now myself because the roads that lead to the trailheads are snow covered and icy. Sunday when we went out for our tree, I had to chain up the Jeep before I got a half mile from the highway.
