Our frosty mornings in the Tetons generally started with hot chocolate, coffee and the campfire going…

Little Homestead on the Hill


Common Snowberry
Symphoricarpos albus 

The little white fruits of the Snowberry bush is mildly toxic, especially to children and pets.  Sorry no taste-testing these guys!

Perfectly white.

The day was nearly over when I was taking these pictures and made the berries almost seem luminescent.

Their hollow stems used to be used as whistles, but the stems are mildly toxic as well.

Little clumps of berries…

Decorations for bare branches…

 These were growing  under some Cottonwoods and the leaf litter was quite pretty too…

Frosty leaves on the ground.

The cold, crisp mountain air combined with the sweet smell of autumn leaves is one of my favorites.   I think I could stand there for several hours and just inhale deeply…
