On a freezing cold and brilliantly blue morning in Trout Lake, Washington.
I sure seem to be thinking about snow and cold a lot this week 🙂 while all around me it’s hot and dry and there are fires. Too many fires.
Today I’ve been sorting through old photos in my hard drives, and came across this series that I took in January 2011. I had so much fun wandering around in the icy conditions with my friends. I thought I would share the ones I got processed :-). I thought they were pretty cool, pun intended. This is in southern Washington.
Catherine Creek Falls has such a great flow in the winter. Notice the ice on the cliffs 🙂
Soon after sunrise at Catherine Creek. On this image I actually used filter on my lens that belonged to a friend. Now I can’t even recall exactly what it was called but it sure made things look pretty 🙂

In spite of the fact that last week it approached 60° for a bit, and plants are starting to show signs of budding and even blooming in some areas further down hill, this morning I was reminded that it is definitely still winter in Trout Lake. ⛄️❄️🌈⛄️.
We might get more over the next few days.
Poor Dear Willow, I know you think this is all my fault, with your poor tired body and achy bones. Believe me I can relate to the tired old body and aching bones bit! I used to like shoveling snow. 😂🤪❄️
Such a lovely morning in Trout Lake! I just wanted to share a few iPhone pics from this morning with you.
This was Saturday afternoon 11/05/16 near Anchor Point, Alaska on the southern Kenai Peninsula, where I nearly got covered with hail at Whiskey Beach. Slideshow with music is posted on the blog post. I wanted to stay and watch it happen and then I looked at the hill I had to drive up to get out of there. It’s a very very steep windy road already getting white, and I was not at all sure of the van in the icy conditions. Good thing, because by the time I was driving on the highway’s they were solid white and getting slick with about a half inch of hail. Next morning I discovered all the hail balls were perfectly preserved in the freezing temperatures 😀😳

It was a wild and fun ride to Trout Lake this morning to the Christmas bazaar, like old times when I lived up there and braved those snow covered roads daily all the way to White Salmon and back. The bazaar was a success thanks to the folks from Trout Lake and Beyond, made some sales and lovely trades and had many good hugs and visits from old friends. THank you Trout Lake!!! Also I was invited to come join the Trout Lake Art Festival next year.
Brought some snow and ice back to share with you!
( ps; I am now taking presales for calendars which will be out in a couple weeks. I will post a set of images as soon as I finish them)
These images are taken about 30-35 miles apart, first one from a few miles away in Trout Lake, Washington, and the other from Hood River, Oregon. Perspective…. it appears more pointy from a greater distance!

Third day of shoveling, the snow has changed as temperatures warm above the low teens where they have been recently. Each shovelful is much more significant, and heavy. Above freezing for a while midday, it was much more pleasant also to walk around and enjoy the view. Most of these images are from today, I hope you enjoy.
