Snow Belt

Uploaded: November 25, 2012 14:12:58


11/25/12, landscape. This is from October- scene across the road. Apparently, even in this valley, our little section is called the Snow Belt- for good reason. We innocently asked when the locked gates across some paths would be opened for snowmobilers. They said that no one has to open the gates- the snow simply covers them up and you go over them. I guess we will see soon enough!

Just incredibly beautiful...and technically, perfect...what an amazing moment, Carol - sun, ominous skies as a backdrop against pristine snow. Yup, despite my warm weather leaning, I could bundle up and brave the elements for a sight like this....well, maybe if I could find a heated snow mobile and was supplied with a hot toddy! :) Another excellent Finalist - congrats! #10484358
