Heading Into Town

2018-04-14 Del Range

This route into Cheyenne, WY is generally just another day of the same view we see on occasion when running errands heading back into town. It struck me from the passenger seat last week how it might look in black and white. It’s always interesting how the things we see daily can be so striking through a different filter.

Spring Snow

2018-03-31 Doves

A Wyoming snow came in today despite it technically being Spring now. It’s snowed several times over the last few days (but here in Cheyenne, only light accumulations).

Despite the snow, the birds were justĀ singing their hearts out while it fell. Robins, Blue Jays, Juncos, House Sparrows, House Finches, Doves, Grackles, Starlings and Flickers were observed today. After filling all of our feeders, I stood outside under the aspens and quietly listened while the flakes fell.

And it felt more like Spring than Winter.

Fog Crystals

Hoarfrost isn’t a weather event I’ve ever seen before personally. But, the small ice crystals that coated our property the other day after a fog rolled in during single digit temperatures seemed to fit the bill, on a smaller scale. They weren’t the long, spike-like formations I’ve seen in more extreme pictures, but it was still impressive to see covering everything in sight. The photo here was a close-up of the edge of the railing on our back deck.
