Winter 2011: A Snowy Beginning

In late September we planted new pasture grasses.  The seeds have been sprouting, and in November we started to get snow.  Now at the end of December we have had more than 50 inches of snow.  The grasses are being watered well.  Here is the sunset on December 28.

Here is the view to the north west over the Front Range.    Below is the view to the east, across the neighbor's horse farm.  The turning fork in the ground is where we cleared away snow and found beets and carrots for Christmas dinner.  Dinner was roasted goose, wild rice dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, cranberry relish, beets and goat cheese. 

The sky reddened as the Sun went down behind the mountains.  Here is the view to the north, followed by the sky above the barn.  As the Sun got lower and lower more thin clouds were illuminated from below, bringing out the small waves.
