Thanks Jane. Our days have for so long been gray and rainy, but today I took a chance and went up high just to get into the snow and the sky opened up. Three hours of hiking through scenery like this renewed my soul!
This was the first real sun here in weeks, but it was very welcome! Not strong yet but I feel better knowing that the days are getting longer and the sun will start warming up a bit too. There was a light wind above about 5000 feet which brought the chill factor down a bit, but even the chill felt good.
We’re in dense fog here, waiting for a front to bring us some blue skies. Since we’ll not have such beautiful, crisp snow to go with them, it’s a special pleasure to see your photos. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Terry. I hope Santa brings you a whole bagful of opportunities for great photos in the New Year!
I was just reminded by a blurb on Turner Classic Movies that the 1947 musical “Finian’s Rainbow” is set in the state of Missitucky. Judging by the two pictures in your post, I’m sure Missitucky isn’t as mountainous and doesn’t get as much snow as the Montucky you’ve shown here today.
I’m afraid snow and Melbourne would not get along well together. Here in rural areas, snow is natural and we are all used to it and prepared for it. There is always a struggle in the cities where the incompetence and cumbersomeness of government make things more difficult than they should be.
I hope you have a pleasant and peaceful Christmas and that you will have improved health in the coming year! I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing your photos and reading your thoughts this year and look forward to much more!
Thank you for a year of sharing what is near and dear to your heart i.e. the beauty of back country Montana. Merry Christmas wishes to you and your family and best wishes for the New Year and your health that you can continue to bring us just a glimpse of the beauty of God’s creation.
