Maybe even in July (that's a BAD thing). Lots of fun things to do in the snow and it can give
some wonderful photo ops. Here are a few of my winter pictures.
weeds poking through the snow
We used to shovel our way in from the road but that became too much work. Now we use snowshoes and pull a toboggan with all the stuff we need for a few days' visit.
In winter, the stove gets pretty hungry and we use a lot of wood; good thing there is plenty nearby. I even use trees cut down by beavers.
In spring snow melts and at night that freezes. Next day the water starts to run again, leaving the top surface, frozen, hanging in space for an hour.
When we camp there in the winter, the snow on the roof starts to melt and slide down the metal roof, very slowly. Sometimes a very loud "WHOOMP!" tells us another ton of half-frozen snow has broken off and crashed to the ground below.
This is what those icycles look like from inside the cabin.
Once the water along the road is running again, it undermines the frozen snow which hangs above it.
This small pine tree looked as if it was wearing a snow skirt.
This is my field in winter as seen from the cabin window.
Mom Nature has great artistic talent in carving snowdrifts.
Here is the cabin, "Snug as a Bug in a Rug."
This fence is supposed to (!!) keep buffalo out of my field.
The lawn won't need mowing for the next 7 months!
At my driveway, the road goes only 2 more miles to the very END.
This is my Family Tree...................not.

The birch tree beside the cabin holds a lot of snow.

Some folks just dont' mind sleeping in the snow. This cow moose rested near the cabin all morning. Don Pratt added the snowman. Thanks, Don!
I was told that this snow sliding off the shed looked like a bra!
If we had stayed at the cabin much longer, we'd have been stuck there until the snowplow's next visit.
Those drifts sure look nice sometimes. High time to GET OUT!
amazing how that snow builds up
This was the temperature back in town, December 13, 2009.
This was back in town; Mom Nature carved this face without my help.
After a long walk on my trails network.
An oil exploration company wanted to drill north of my cabin but the ground is not very dry and hard so they sucked water out of various "ponds" and spread it, at night, on the "cutlines" to make it strong enough to hold up the equipment; this went for several miles.
Sometimes on a really cold morning, in town, the air is frozen like this.
Hopefully the beavers are keeping snug in their lodge.
Birds have more sense; they LEAVE for the duration.
Well, SOME don't but somehow, they manage.
This coyote must have found pickings pretty slim.
Snow-covered branches can make a nice picture frame at the cabin.
This doe Muledeer wondered just what WE were doing IN the cabin.
This buck Muledeer was right behind the cabin, looking for ladies.
A grizzly bear had been visiting near the cabin at my brother's place.
This cow moose just watched me walk by; lucky for me she did not mind me trespassing on her turf.
