DAY 175 Day of Rest & Favorite Photos

Hi Journal & Friends,

Someone on another blog mentioned it would soon be spring... eek! I wanted to post more pretty winter snow photos. Guess I'd better get on that!

Here are two that Jim took a couple of years ago, right after a winter storm. We live in a "bowl" here in Oregon. We are down in a valley, surrounded by mountain ranges. Normally we don't get too much snow on the valley floor. But this time, it came down pretty good, and was beautiful!

Jim went to this tiny park right in the center of town and was excited about the "winter wonderland" he found. It was early morning with no one around, and he said it was gorgeous.  (click pics to enlarge)

Enjoy the Journey,

That's pretty much what it looks like outside my window today. Doesn't feel too close to spring.

Hey, Loretta. Those pictures are beautiful. The one with the gazebo just drew me in. That little spot of shelter, that little bit of moon, the pristine beauty of the sno... I don't know' it almost brought tears to my eyes. It could be an opening scene to a movie--a mystery. A secret is held in that shot. (Boy, I sure can get dramatic, can't I?)

Thanks for these few moments when I looked at that photo and felt a story form.

Thanks for sharing the pictures...gorgeous. Oregon is one of my dream destinations. Never been west of Chicago! Gotta change that. Home you're having a good Monday.

Gorgeous pictures. We got a bit of snow last week, too. I love it in the morning against a brilliant blue sky and the sun kissing the tops of the trees. :)
