Winter Photos From The Mountains

 The above photo is the culvert that drains the spring from up on our property which is the  photo below. The spring comes from deep in the mountain and runs all year long which is why it runs all year. The deeper in the ground the source the more even the temperature of the water. We have a second spring that runs all year also but it freezes before it can get very far down the mountain. It fans our on the ground and freezes.

 The above photo is where the deer and elk are eating the aspen tree bark. I walked around and found several places where they pawed the snow away looking for grasses to eat. Below is a photo of the swing where it is pretty cold to sit now days.

Welcome to the neighborhood Ray and Sandy. I'll keep publishing the photos because almost everywhere we look there is beauty worth sharing. That is still true after living here full time for almost 20 years.
