For 2 days we have had gorgeous weather. It has been such a dull winter so far. This was a real treat.
I snowshoed over to the river.
My property is between where I am standing and the snowy hill in the middle distance on the left. I call the snowy hill the south bluffs; today I am going up the north bluffs.
The snowshoeing is divine. The thaws have meant that the base is firm; the extra 8 inches is perfect powder.
This is only a part of the panoramic view. The diagonal white patch on the middle left is Highway 20. The streak on the middle right is a frozen lake.
At the end of the day was one of the very rare clear sunsets we have had this year.
On the shortest day, the sun goes down way to the left of Finger Peak. Now it is hitting Noghwon’s shoulder.
The trade-off for this fabulous weather? It is a little chilly in the morning.
