Who could resist going for a stroll in it!



  1. I’d be going for a walk too.Maybe we’ll get snow in our mountains this weekend..Can count on you for great pictures!

    • We are expecting more in the next few days. We will have a cold air mass from Canada in place then and a weather front from the Pacific is supposed to arrive along with it providing some moisture. I think this one is too far north to hit your area though. I hope we do get more snow, because when the very cold air hits often the sky will be crystal clear and deep blue, making a beautiful contrast to the snow.

  2. Oooh, this is a beautiful time of year! Or the first snowfall, at least. 🙂

  3. Winter Wonderland! I couldn’t resist walking in this. How beautiful!

    • Yes, it was really pretty. Hopefully there will be much more!

  4. Hi Montucky, I am so glad you took that stroll and the pictures! Beautiful! We have about 2 weeks before we’ll get our first dusting of the white stuff. Have a fun-filled Friday. Enjoy that snow!

    • This is a rather late start for here. There is plenty at the high elevations though. Have a great weekend!

  5. Always something special about a first snow.

    • There sure is. I especially enjoy seeing all of the animal tracks and seeing who all visited during the night.

  6. Not I!!! It’s so beautiful & white!!!

    • It’s hard to beat a new snow early in the morning, isn’t it!

  7. Great capture of winter’s beauty!

  8. wow! gorgeous! I admit, if I was bundled up enough I would probably be willing to stroll through such a winter wonderland!

    • I think you would have liked this one, Stacey. It was relatively warm.


      Comment by montucky — November 19, 2010 @ 10:25 pm

  9. I sure couldn’t. This is the third blog in a row I have been on with new snow. It is beautiful on the trees and even on the road, if you are walking. I like both these shots.

    • From the weather reports I’ve seen there will be large parts of the states that have winter scenes! The cold spell we are expecting is supposed to move farther east and south after it cools us off.

  10. A winter wonderland, how beautiful (especially in a picture).


    Comment by Candace — November 20, 2010 @ 12:02 am

    • You probably could have put up with the temperature that day, Candace. Next week, probably not.


      Comment by montucky — November 20, 2010 @ 12:23 am

  11. So beautiful! I would have gotten out to take a walk in it as well!

    • That snow melted later in the day, but it was replaced today by more which will be here for awhile. Pretty, but it sure made the roads a mess!


      Comment by montucky — November 20, 2010 @ 8:11 pm

  12. Beautiful. I know I’d be taking a leisurely stroll through this wonderland.


    Comment by knightofswords — November 20, 2010 @ 8:57 am

    • I did and enjoyed it thoroughly. It’s a bit cold now though but with more new snow it’s still pretty.


      Comment by montucky — November 20, 2010 @ 8:13 pm

  13. It is so good to catch up with your photos and the arrival of snow. These gorgeous photos remind me of the first snow here. I wish it would return!


    Comment by Cait — November 20, 2010 @ 11:07 am

    • Your snow photos were beautiful! I hope to get some more too during the next week. We had a couple of inches today, but the light wasn’t good for photography. Perhaps it will settle down in the next few days.

  14. Lovely images… cold is NOT my thing but I do love the snow (Red Lodge is getting a ton of it, apparently, making for a good base on the mountain and MAYBE a good ski season there)


    Comment by Victoria — November 21, 2010 @ 10:39 am

    • I think Red Lodge is very cold tonight! They are in the middle of the Arctic air that’s coming in here now. Yes, they should have a good year at the ski area. Lookout Pass ski area near here opened this weekend too. I hope we will have a great snow year!

  15. What a great place for a walk – er a drive in a heated car!! So pretty!


    Comment by Stacey Dawn — November 22, 2010 @ 12:28 am

    • Yep, however you do it, it’s pretty. It’s not the same tonight: everything is white.


      Comment by montucky — November 22, 2010 @ 8:29 pm

  16. Ohhhh, I can tell I’m going to love your winter shots just as much as your summer and fall ones!


    Comment by Robin — November 22, 2010 @ 6:59 am

    • Thanks Robin. I’m looking forward to trying for a few shots tomorrow. We will have nearly a foot of new snow on the ground, perhaps with drifts and it will be around zero.
