Record breaking (two feet here!) Christmas Day snowfall was followed by a very brief warm-up.
Almost two more feet of snow fell on January 3rd.
And now? Ice-coated trees glisten in the sunlight, as these skiers enjoy some of the best cross-country ski conditions in years.

We watched a Rough Legged Hawk (Buteo lagopus) as he followed the ridge of Elk Mountain northward toward his home in the Tundra.
This hawk is characterized as being ‘uncommon’ in this area, and is startlingly tame as it rarely encounters humans in its home in the far north.
The incarnation of the Hill Dog transits our lives.
In her wake we are,
Kinder to each other,
Richer in love,
Stronger in faith,
Brighter in spirit.
A relatively warm dry winter, that ended cold and damp, gives way to Spring.
