Here Comes the Snow

Last night's sunset
We're under a high wind warning all day today, but we lucked out (relatively speaking) this morning in that it was only moderately bad.  Still the temperature was below freezing when Dr. K, Becca and I hit the Grand View Trail.  Good thing we were properly equipped with the right clothing.  All things considered we had a good trek today.  On the way back we stopped at the High Rolls General Store for bottled water and pretzels.  That's what we're living on these days.

Storm in the higher elevations

Out on the Grand View Trail

Cold, crisp and windy this morning

Decidedly winterlike to the north

Dr. K is appropriately dressed for the wintry conditions

Slightly ominous over the mountains

What's up there?

The quick way down if you're carrying a zip line harness

Looks like a flycatcher

Get me out of this quicksand :)

Headed back now

Guess I'm obsessed with the view of Haynes Canyon today
