Quick Shots

We’ve been busy! Here are a few quick shots of some of the things we’ve done the last couple days.

Here’s a photo of that circumhorizontal arc I mentioned yesterday. This photo does not do the brilliant colors justice. It was spectacular! All the various arcs we saw were magnificent. This one, in particular, we really liked as it looked a bit like a bird to us.

There’s snow in them thar hills!

Dude was schoolin’ me on labyrinth protocol! He’s only been to one other (but he remembered the “rules”). He took it upon himself to walk the path.

Where we normally see mountains, all we could see was clouds. Clouds clouds clouds! It was a little surreal. As we got closer, it was apparent that the clouds weren’t just there for their good looks; lots of wind and cold air awaited us. And snow. LD liked that. He’s never been snowed upon. Until yesterday.

Mountains of clouds

The horses were down low because of the cold and snow. For some reason, they were really liking the road and there were a couple times when horses wouldn’t move and we just had to sit and wait. We weren’t the only ones. Other drivers were just as stuck. My favorite horses of the day were “the twins”. Here’s one of them.

One of the twins - Wild Horses

The twins. They were so funny! Crowded around the front of the car with two other horses. Guess they were trying to keep warm.

Finally, last night we went to see Human Nature. LD loved the show (said it was better than Blue Man Group) and was actually bold enough to stop Phil and ask for a photo.

  6. Yep, that’s my boy. Getting tall and still amazingly sweet.

    Jan, I kinda like the hair. I want to shape the sides a bit, but that’s about it.

  10. Those arcs are called sundogs. We get them up here all the time. They’re caused by ice crystals in the cirrus clouds acting like a prism on the sunlight. Think rainbows using ice instead of rain. They can be spectacular.

    Good to see you guys are haveing fun in the snow. welcome to my world!!

  11. From what I read, this wasn’t a sundog because it was missing that horizontal line. Either way, it was pretty amazing to witness it with LD.

    Snow’s down pretty low, P2. Fantastic stuff. Lovin’ it.
