    • This photo was taken a week ago. There is deep snow up there now, but we are warming up again now so some of it will melt during the next week. It’s still below freezing up there at night and in the shady spots.

  3. Those clouds just draw me right in. It’s lovely up there. It is the stuff that dreams are made of!!

    • It’s wonderful country, Stacey, and yet this, some of our last remaining truly wild country, is under constant attack by those who want to exploit and destroy it for momentary financial gain or the pleasure of driving thrill-craft through it and they have the support of our elected officials. I will never understand!

  4. Stacy is so right that that is a place that dreams are made of.

    • It is, and I hope it will be there for those who would dream of it in many future generations. This particular area stands a better chance for protection than other areas because it is active habitat of Grizzlies and that carries a bit of weight with many of the federal agencies.

  5. The deep green trees frosted with a layer of white snow are very beautiful.

    • I regret that I didn’t take a few shots of the trees by themselves. There were several that were just beautiful with the snow/frost decorating. Oh well, I’ll get some later.

  6. Once again the big sky steals the show but the mountains and shadows are spectacular as well. Great work as always, Terry.

    • We were lucky to have that weather for the hike. The next day was very cold and there was about a foot of snow on the peak.
