Ciel with her true love

Ciel has new skis, so I guess I'll be sleeping on the couch...

My happy spot in the winter

Headed up to the mountain I have a view of the Granby River Valley.  When there is inversions like now, tons of fog below but blue sunshine overhead.  People in town don't realize the sun is out.

Because of the fog and cold air, lots of hoar frost on the trees making everything shiny crystally.

But then the signs of spring with the color pallette of reds shining through the green and white.

Taking notice of the intricate designs of the hoar frost as it builds out in the clear skies

There is fresh snow that is getting lighter and lighter with the cold air - and soft spots for those who know where.  The surface hoar tinkles as it gets cut by the ski tracks.

A hike on a beautiful but cold day

Today we hiked up to the international viewpoint above Midway. There were lots of deer tracks and we saw a couple of deer just below the top.
