Skywatch Friday - Chill Out!

Just six months ago, this was the vista before me...high up in the mountains above the Methow Valley in Washington state. So high up that we were above the cloud layer blanketing the valley floor. Since our temps lately have been in the 90's, I thought I would look back on a snowy February day and chill out for a bit. Before long, the snow will start falling at higher elevations in the mountains and we'll be back to scenes like this.

  3. On a hot day looking at pictures of snow really does seem to help - that and going to the fridge to get something cold!

    Very nice pictures.

  5. I thought I was a little nuts today for opening with a snow shot--so thanks. These are really beautiful and probably will make it easier to get through a Texas summer Friday!

  11. Ooo, I feel cooler now just after looking at those snowy scenes! I especially like the first photo with the snow, the bare mountains, and the fog in the valley. Great shots!
