Looks like a perfect place for snow-rafting . . .

Looks like a perfect place for a snug warm cabin with a window to gaze through with a cup of hot chocolate in hand….. 😉

Indeed, it is, Gunta. 🙂

So beautiful Scott. I really miss snow. We don’t seem to get it here in the south west of the UK anymore. 😦

I do love it here, Adrian, with the mountains so close. I’ve read that it’s going to be a banner year for snow, as well…about two weeks ago they said we were already at 70-80% of normal/needed snowfall, so with about three (or more) months of good snow to come, we should have more than enough to share with you. 🙂

Beautiful, Scott. So peaceful. And I haven’t said it yet, but Happy New Year. Hope you have a great 2014.

It was so very peaceful out there, Erica. I was on the trail for over four hours before I saw another person…and that was shortly before I arrived back at my truck. Wishing you the best for the New Year, too, my Idaho/Norway friend. 🙂

Oh, my! It’s a painting. So pretty and untouched. 🙂

Imagine viewing it with a bright sun on your face and crisp mountain air in your lungs! It’s a treasure being out there, George….a wonderful treasure.

Beautiful scene and the colour, although very subtle, is I think very important here.

Thank you, Andy…I was a little concerned with most of the photos being overexposed from all the white out there, but some of them turned-out reasonably well….or salvageable, anyway. 🙂

I know this is Utah, but it reminds me of winter days in Vermont. Lovely!

I’ve not been to Vermont, but I imagine it looking like this, somehow.

I can just hear the silence and feel the tranquility.

Oh, it IS fantastic out there, Gary!

I can almost feel that crisp winter air! What a gorgeous winter scene! Are those human footprints there?

Thank you, Susan…and I was just looking at those footprints last night as I was responding to the other comments….the smaller ones are from deer, but I don’t know about those larger ones. I was the only person out there making tracks on the trail, as it was smooth from a recent snow, but I’m not sure about those others…I’m tempted to think that any off-trail tracks by people would have been covered, too…so who knows….?

I’d enjoy taking a walk there… with high boots of course.
January 14, 2014 at 11:04 pm
I think you would, Shimon…with the high boots, or gaiters, even.
