The first heavy snowfall of the season! On Sunday we woke up to find a soft blanket of snow here in the high desert. The Scottish terrorists were delighted!
We headed out early into the winter wonderland. The pups loved it! They were hopping through the drifts like little kangaroos. They especially enjoyed diving into the snowbanks around the trees and bushes to see if any voles, mice, or even—rabbits—might be hiding under that white powder.
Corrie eventually had to hitch a ride with the Wrenaissance Man, as the snow drifts got a bit too deep for her. Nevis was in fine spirits all the way.
After being combed out and toweled dry, the pups warmed up for a couple of hours before heading out again for a second short walk midday.
After a long dry spell, a snowy winter will refuel aquifers and surface streams here in the high desert and Sangre de Cristos.
