Ranch pond

On a short hike today the fog began to close in rapidly causing me to cut the hike short. As I returned to where I had parked, I was drawn to the colors of a willow tree (to the left in the first photo) that grows beside a pond on a ranch at the bottom of the canyon, and I decided to venture down near it for a photo.


Upon taking that photo, I was drawn to the tree in about the center of the photo and framed it for another shot which I liked even better than the first. Something about the fog…


There is always a beautiful scene (or one that I consider so) awaiting those who pass by.

Arctic air

Cold pond

Don’t let the clear blue sky deceive you; it’s cold! It was about 8° this afternoon when this picture was taken. It has since drifted down to -4°, and -12° is expected for tonight’s low. After just two cold nights, the ice on the pond is over 2 inches thick.

Winter moss

Spring Creek

This is the time of year when the winter mosses put on their bright green clothes and play by the water. These are beneath the tall cedars in the Spring Creek canyon.
