Tuesday and Wednesday our area was showered with a light snowfall. Unusual for February, as we typically are finished with snow in January at this altitude.
Although the snow amounted to just a few inches, it was wet and heavy causing frequent intermittant power outages, a perfect opportunity to get out of the house for a bite of lunch at a small nearby cafe.
The drive is pretty through the forest, just on the other side of the river. :)
These are a few shots from around the bend from my house, along the way.
Looking at the area today it's difficult to believe in few weeks, as the weather warms, the river and riverbanks will be lively with fishermen and others enjoying all kinds of water sports.
Snow fell then melted on this rock in the shape of a heart... although I enhanced it just a little bit with my fingers. :) I couldn't resist.
As pretty as it was, it was so nice to come home and get cozy in front of a warm fire.
