Winter Arrives

Winter solstice is a couple weeks away, but winter has arrived in Western Montana.  From me, winter gets a friendly “Welcome!”

The sub-alpine fir trees up on Lolo Pass are one good storm away from turning into snow ghosts.

Also welcome was a visit from a flock of pine grosbeaks to the ornamental apple trees in our yard.

This young ram seem to be a little lonely – rut time and he’s not a dominant ram yet.

The arrival of winter weather preceded the Geminid Meteor Shower by a few days, making watching the meteor shower from Lolo Pass a bit chilly, but still delightful.
