Day Zero Two Three: January Photo Challenge: FLAKES

Day 12 of the First Thirty-One over at!  Today’s challenge was “Flakes”.

With two-plus feet of snow on the ground, today’s challenge wasn’t much of a challenge at all (which is wonderful, because I’ve really struggled with a couple of them – for the sake of keeping things interesting, and all that…)

My photo for the day is lovely Lorraine during our snowshoe hike today.  The day started wonderfully, and I dragged my sorry self out of bed and headed down to the farmer’s market to meet Linda (and get some fresh eggs!  our chickens haven’t been producing lately in the valley, so eggs are in short supply).  After lunch, we headed to Lorraine’s house and went snowshoeing up on the ridge overlooking town, and then down and across Col Lake.

It was a lovely way to spend the day.

Hey look, I’m actually in a picture! I asked Lorraine to take a photo to prove I was on the hike (instead of the one photographing, like usual)
