Snowy Peak

We finally had our first good rain in months last week, and on our local mountain (Pikes Peak, elevation 14,110 feet, or 4,300 meters) it was snow.
So I went to Garden of the Gods on Friday morning to get some photos of the season's first snow.
And here are those photos!
It's my part of the Our World Tuesday meme - winter is coming.

  2. Ah, yes! Winter is coming! What beautiful captures of your world, Martha! Love your blue, blue skies! We're going on two months of blue skies with only a few showers early one morning! Breaking records for the northwest!! Hope you have a great week!
