Winter Sky Travelers - Missoula, Montana

Note to self: When standing on a narrow, icy hillside path and tracking birds in flight, rotating quickly while gazing overhead can create a problem of balance. However, as no one fell down said hillside, all's well that ends well.

Yesterday's Sun And Shadow - Missoula, Montana

Ah, the glorious sun at last boldly broke apart the endless-seeming grey days!
So delighted was I at finally sunshine and shadow that I didn't even mind the inevitable sock scrunch-down down down with each stride of my big winter boots.

I paused to take in the pale (& lately rare) winter sunshine filtering through tops of the riverbank trees, & was reminded of similar childhood views through a winter-sparse row of cottonwoods flanking our farm. Evening snow lends such a quiet calm.
