We went to Bozeman, in search of winter. And, we found it.
This is Grotto Falls, in the Hyalite Canyon.
This is sledding down the sides of the Hyalite Reservoir onto the ice below, which was so fun. It was a long walk back up, as you can tell from where the boys are above L.
Laurel was giving me crazy fish lips here, but you can see the scale. The boys are walking to the other side to sled. People were skiing, ice fishing, sledding, snow shoeing. It was a stunningly beautiful day. The mountains are so close in the Hyalite Canyon.
This is what the snow looked like at home when we came back. But, these icy, snow fence drifts have their own appeal (when you are a lighter soul than I).
Also, snow sculptures were inspired... I think the top is cactus, bath tub, fox, bowling alley, traditional snow person.
This is a whale. Oh, the imagination.
We are back to this in town... the nearly 60 degrees and windy of a chinook. But, that will make real winter less appealing, if it returns. Seems too soon to be done yet :)
