the snow hunt

My daughter invited me to ride with her and 4 of her grandkids up the Mt. Baker Highway to find snow. And we did! Lots of it.

 This ancient Cedar stands alongside the highway tall and strong.

 This is the north fork of the Nooksack River, Moving slowly with mounds of snow piled high around it. The snow in the foreground is from the snowplow.
 Water falling off the rock cliff is all ice now and fascinating to see,

 Here's a closer picture of the icefall. I love to enlarge this and plan to use it for a desktop background.
 Just look at the huge piles of snow!! The river is way in the background. Notice the footprints on the snowy log to the left. I didn't see any coming back. ??? Maybe he's still down there!
When we were coming back down the highway the sun was shining through these moss covered trees. The color was really beautiful but some looked like grotesque, green monsters!

Well that's all for now. Hope you are having a blessed week!

I prayed. And next time I tried it worked. God fixed it for me. He's real sweet that way. :)

Hello Dear Bev...
I send blessings and good wishes for a very happy & healthy New Year.
I was so pleased you stopped by and left a few words for me. I've not been a very good blogger of late and I was surprised to find that folk were still reading my blog. It is my intention to try and do better in 2013. I don't seem to have the inspiration like I used to... getting older I think is the problem.
Take care. Marion - Wales UK
