If I could paint.

"Spring" pics

I never use this door to the garage, at least not anymore.

Ice, slush and standing water. 

Like a Wile E. Coyote trap.  Acme Iceberg.

Waiting the lame feet of spring

Spring, or what passes for it, has been unusually cold and wet this year.  

This time last year.

Late Winter Pics

Not as deep.

This mound of plowed snow will be here a while.

Melting snow, frozen ground.

Cross Country Skiing (3/13/2011)

The skiing season is winding down.  The snow is already too slushy around my cabin, but it's still good up on the Chief Joseph Cross Country Ski Trails at 7,300 feet.

A warm and sunny day on the mountain.

We graduated from the green trails to the blue trails.

Like I know what I'm doing.

Funky snow ball in the tree.

The trails were groomed on Friday, but they were still in good shape on Sunday afternoon.
