We had a blizzard here on Wednesday. It left us with about a foot of snow (and some drifts) and it's absolutely breathtakingly beautiful outside. Yesterday I walked to the end of our dirt road - 1 1/2 miles away - and back again. Come see the sights with me.
I'm always amazed at how snow turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.
This little tree is only about five feet high. The snow turned it into a veritable Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
Snow-covered sentinels, marching along the edge of the field. Click this one to enlarge - it's pretty neat.
Every single branch had its ornament of snow.
Fence corners were half-buried.
From far, far across the canyon, I spotted a herd of deer. I put the camera on maximum zoom and got this:
Here's the herd, cropped:
Back home, some Christmas lights on snow.
This morning dawned crystal-clear and very, very cold (about 2F). But the sun rising through the trees was incomparable.
