After the snow last week we woke one morning to an awesome fog that had settled into the valley. Ken rushed out camera in hand. He was gone for a couple of hours and returned with these awesome images.

Sunday we headed for for Varney Bridge to walk. Every fishing access was filled with fishermen, dogs and boats. It was in the mid fifties and a spectacular day.

Spring Weather

Photos by Ken W. Hall

It has been another interesting week. Last Sunday the weather was breezy but in the mid forties.

We wanted to get out and walk so we headed for bear trap canyon. The road was closed so we walked along the lake. The only ice left was around the shore line.

The lake was lower than usual. They must be getting ready for the spring run offs.

Early in the week we were blessed with more snow. It must have been about three inches.

Here are some images Ken captured of the amazing ice sculptures only mother nature could form.

More Snow Photos

Photos by Ken W. Hall

It is sixty-sixty degrees outside today with a light breeze. I want to get outside and start planting seeds.

Last week this time we had more snow. Here are some more photos Ken captured after I walked to work in the snow last Monday.

The Day After the Snow Fell

Photos by Ken W. Hall

Today the sun is shining and it is expected to reach sixty degrees. Hard to believe last Monday we woke up to a total of eighteen inches of snow.

After a night of powerful winds and lots of snow there were drifts in our yard and next to our fence that were four feet tall.

Rather than take the time to dig out our vehicles I elected to walk to work. As you can see the snow was up to the top of my snow boots. I took advantage of the ruts left by a truck that passed earlier.

It was so peaceful and beautiful. There was a gentle breeze, sun and lots of white snow everywhere.

I left Ken behind to take more photos. I think he took close to 200 that morning. He loves to play in the snow.

The Day The Snow Fell

Photos by Ken W. Hall

Ken just emailed me some photos he took last Sunday when we received so much snow. I am going to break them up into more than one post this week to give you an idea of what it was like.

On Sunday morning the snow began to fall early and fell all day. Here are some photos of me clearing away six inches of snow off the deck before our friend from Bozeman arrived for a visit.

It was calm and the snow was so beautiful as it fell.

As you can tell it was not too cold or I would not have been out without a coat. I think it was about thirty-six degrees.

The birds were busy eating. They must have known what a night it would be.
