Snowshoeing in Glacier…

Seems like forever since I have been on here!  Life is just crazy busy but going well here.  It seems like winter has been oh, so very long this year.  Perhaps it because it’s because we haven’t seen the sun in what seems like forever.  No big dips in temperature, which has been great for the seep and other outside animals.

Last weekend the sun finally came out, so we took the boys and Emma up to the Park to do some snowshoeing…

Reflection on Lake McDonald…

As you can see, part of Lake McDonald was glass smooth and the mountains reflected beautifully…

Happy Winter Solstice

It’s been so very busy  lately that I haven’t had much time to update my blog.  We received about a foot of new snow last night, so this morning Markus and I headed out to take some snow pictures.  We found these Bison and thought they were beautiful wearing their snow coats…_Z3A6029-2_Z3A6070-2_Z3A6081-2

Montana At It’s Finest…

Last night we had pouring rain and 40 degrees, sometime in the night it changed to snow and wind.  This morning it was brisk -30 degrees Fahrenheit!  I don’t mind the cold or snow but sure get hard on critters when we have wet conditions and then gets really cold.  I was happy to see every one fared the night alright and were anxiously awaiting breakfast this morning…
