A couple of weeks ago we had the first major storm of the year here in Montrose. We got about a foot of snow, depending on where you were. It was gorgeous! I was moving that day, so I didn’t get a ton of pictures taken. I did get several that I really like. Now that we are all moved I should hopefully be getting back on top of this blogging thing. I have more pictures from the past couple of months that I need to post on here, so those should be coming up soon.
For now, here’s the storm! Enjoy!
Last night I decided to grab the kiddos and take a walk along the canal by my in-laws’ house just before sunset. They got to run, I got to take pictures. It was completely win/win!
Very rare picture of my munchkins – Both looking at me, both smiling!

I recently got the opportunity to do two of my favorite things in one day, thanks to one of my favorite customers from work. Horseback riding and taking pictures. Actually, we didn’t ride horses, we rode mules, but that’s just a technicality.
We went out on a four-hour-long mule ride on the Uncompahgre Plateau. We headed out with the intention of getting some wildlife pictures – however, the day was quite windy and a little on the chilly side – it seemed that the residents of the forest were fairly well hunkered down. It was still an amazing day, and I got a few pictures of the very gnarled aspen trees that we saw, among other forest-y things.
I rather like the way they turned out.

My new pal, Buddy 🙂
This is Woody. He’s a good mule.
In this week’s Photo Challenge we have been asked to share a silhouette – So I dug around a little and found a few of my favorites.
My favorite dirt bike silhouette.
Not quite a true silhouette, but I still like it.
Another good almost-silhouette
A Vic Payne statue being assembled for display in my town. [He has made sculptures for places such as Cabela’s and has his work in several museums, as well]
