Ski Season!

Ski season began on Thanksgiving Day. Savanna made it up there five days in a row, but Maralee and I didn't go up until Sunday. Garrett is always way ahead of me. Any good photos I get of him have to be planned ahead.
Maralee skiing silly and Jay skiing serious.
I took this picture of Savanna from the lift. She and her friends are happy that a small terrain park was created for opening weekend.

Pre-Ski Fun

Everyone is anxiously awaiting the official ski season opening day (especially Savanna), but on a nice pre-season snowy day the next best thing to do is go sledding at Firecracker Hill in Town Park.

Halloween!!

We had beautiful weather for Halloween this year! Made for a great kids' parade on Main Street.
Maralee was Frankie Stein from Monster High.
Supergirl Savanna.
Scorpion wins.
Jay and I were Perseus and Medusa for our friend's birthday party on Saturday. What fun!

Autumn Magic

Last Thursday we had our first winter snowstorm, and it was a special treat since we still have our autumn leaves. The electricity went out for a few hours, so I was able to get away from the computer and take a bunch of photos.
Bridal Veil Falls is in the shade here, but....
this is what it looked like just a few days earlier.
When I was in the Aldasoro Ranch area, a badger ran across the road and then turned around and looked at me.

Owl Creek Pass and the Silver Jack Reservoir

The bad weather followed us on over to Owl Creek Pass, but I had the feeling if we didn't go that day we would miss our chance to see the leaves changing. The cows were out enjoying the colors, too!
Cloudy Silver Jack Reservoir with Courthouse Mountain and Chimney Rock in the distance.
Chimney Rock and the location of the big shootout in the original "True Grit."
There was a double rainbow as we headed back to the highway. We also got to hear a bull elk bugling nearby a couple of minutes before several wild turkeys ran across the road in front of us. It may have not been a great day for photos, but definitely not a total loss!
