SOME FROSTY PICTURES

Our inversion is still going strong so we have a lot of frost on the everything.  Got tired of being in the house and took the dog for a walk with my camera in my pocket and took a few pictures.

Even old baling twine looks good with frost on it.


This is frost on horsehair from a mane in the feeder.

More horsehair.


Even the hay hook handles have frost.

And barbwire can't escape it.

GREAT DAY SKIING GROOMERS

Went up to Lost Trail and skied some great groomers on a blue bird clear day.  A little cold right at first but warmed up.  We have an inversion event happening here in Southwestern Montana and Eastern central Idaho.  Cold air trapped in the valleys with fog. Clear and warmer up in the mountains though. 

This is our little ski resort on the Montana - Idaho border about 50 miles south of our place.  Great little mom and pop place (it is actually son and daughter outfit now). 

That is Ike in the red coat waiting on Brenda and Connie to show up.  The folks in blue are the instructors waiting for their students.

Some of the runs.

This is looking south into Idaho.
 
This group is what we refer to as the "Old Guys" with about half in their 80s and the rest in their 70s.  Good skiers and have a great time skiing together.  Look close and you can see Connie "photo bombing" this picture right in the middle/back.  From the left is Peter, Ed (the youngest in his mid 70s), Tom D., (Connie in the back in blue coat) Jerry, Tom E., and Jay.  Like I said, they are all very good skiers and really a great group of guys.  Ladies ski with them sometimes also.

New ski patrolers.  I know this because their jackets look like they just came out of a box.

Connie and Brenda right ahead of the ski patrol.


When we got home from skiing I took Zeph for a walk south of the cabin in the frosty forest.

Lots of frost on the pine needles with this inversion.

You can see our trail down the center of picture.
