  2. These are GOOD. The first photo is very artistic with the trees lined up in the background; I like it. Then the 4th one down looks just like a glimpse into a Christmas village. Super good.
    Have to tell you, Chip, there are now 3 weather forecasts, all different. First one says 16 inches or more on Christmas day; the next says only 6 inches, and the last says we won’t get any. It’s all nuts.

    • And our weather guesser stood there at 6:15 and said we’ll get nothing or a foot! He says that right now the models are going both ways and he doesn’t know which to beleive.

  3. Hey Rocket, I may be headed your way in a few days. We haven’t decided for sure. The weather is looking kinka iffy. It does look cold! Cold doesn’t bother me too much. It’s the driving in poor conditions with thousands of others on the idiot strip that makes the trip this time of year interesting.
    Love all the shots here. The tractor and the one following it are my favs.
    Hope ya’ll have a Merry Christmas and give Buddy a scratch behind the left ear for me!

    • Left ear scratched, big ol’ yawn in response, then he collapsed on my feet and I am now pinned to the chair by nearly 100 lbs of Lab.

    Great shots, as usual. Brrr, it looks so cold. Wonderful vistas with the snow and especially the tractor shot. The second one looks like some kind of fort?! Where? Do tell.

    • Sue, that second one is a shot of a recreated pioneer settlement near the visitor’s center in town. The buildings were either dismantled on their original sites and re-assembled here or were built using materials salvaged from old homesteads. Sadly, this is on private property and only open to visitors one day a year. For the past 2 years we had heavy rain on those days and they did not schedule rain days but I’ll keep trying until I get a day with good weather and you can bet I’ll come away with a full memory card!

  6. without frills, real winter – I like the pic above, in its rythm, it contains all of that cold and stringent feeling.
    But still: Happy Holidays, Chip. 🙂
