Another photo from the snowmobile trip to Mt. Spokane, taken while the boys were climbing through the fog to the top of the ski lift. There was just enough room for the sun to peek out and join the flock of trees standing on the side of the mountain.
First snowmobile trip of the year! That means lots of snowy pictures. :) This spot on the mountain was treated to the full force of the wind, so my fingers went numb. However, all that wind meant that trees like this one got a heavy dose of flocking.
I particularly like this photo because the white tree has a face: two dark vertical spots midway up the tree form the eyes and the larger horizontal spot below them serves as a scowling mouth. The errant branch sticking out on the left side might be interpreted as a shaking fist. Overall, I think its expression is akin to: “Get off my lawn, you whippersnappers!”
A longstanding feud rages within the confines of my backyard. On one side: the loyal, if somewhat lazy, Lab/Shepherd guardian. On the other: a squadron of squirrels, masters of guerrilla tactics with ninja-like agility. They wait, locked in perpetual stalemate – the subject of this week’s Saturday Snapshot.
Only a week away from home and I am already missing Cho-Cho looking at me through the window. So I have to settle for a mere picture of him looking at me through a browser window. At least he won’t lick it from the outside like he does at home!
I would smuggle him with me to Arizona, but Cho-Cho would likely not fit in my suitcase. Or my apartment. Or the state of Arizona.
