I suppose that it’s a good thing I like snow, living at the elevation I do. Here are some photos I captured on a Christmas Morning snowshoe hike.
The second snowfall of the season was deep and pretty. I live for those mornings that dawn bright and sunny after it snows. The snow glitters white and the sky a deep blue. It’s a blue that only is seen at high elevations.
I was up early and hiked to one of my favorite nearby hilltops. I’d live up on top of this if there was any way that I could. The hilltop doesn’t seem to have an official name and I’m still working on making up a name of my own.
It seems like it was just yesterday I was walking in autumn colored leaves.
Wait! It was just yesterday, just before the sun set.
Not surprising for this time of year, it snowed 4 inches last night and this morning.
The Mountain Bluebirds didn’t seem to mind.
In a couple of months, the temperatures will be colder and the water frozen over. Meanwhile, this snow will melt within a day or two and we’ll be back to our Indian Summer.
