Snow in the forest

Following a 70 degree day on Saturday, yesterday brought thunder snow to the area. From the warmth of the house, we watched the snow fall and pile up.

“It’s like being in a snow globe.”

And now, the morning after, we have the peaceful beauty of snow laden trees under the bluebird sky. In a few days, as the temperature rises, it will melt in loud thuds to the ground and once again the forest will be green and brown.

Visitors in the forest

One of the joys of living in a national forest is finding wildlife right outside our home. Yesterday, this beautiful moose decided to give the truck a car wash and spend the night on the edge of our driveway. I woke up early, but she was gone.
