Sugar Plum Fairies at Kootenai Creek


Whenever I enter winter - taking a few steps beyond the car, past the parking lot and far enough into the landscape that the cold starts freezing my fingers - I think about the first time I really entered winter. My freshman roommate took me on an overnight snowshoe trip into New Hampshire's White Mountains.  The twisted pine trees up high were frosted with powdery snow and I could hear strains of The Nutcracker playing in my head.

Beautiful.  Unlike anything I had ever seen.

Now I am fortunate to enter winter regularly, taking backcountry ski trips to marvelous locations.  Sometimes in the midst of the sweaty, freezing, keep-moving trips I forget to take a moment to look around me.

Here are some photos up the slowly freezing Kootenai Creek, an ice-filled, glittering, wonderland on an overcast day.  Photos can't capture it, so I urge you to stop for a moment next time you're in winter and take a deep look.

When you get to arguments over what temp of water drink you know you're being pedantic. Hot or cold as long as you are drinking water you're in a good place instead of alcohol and coffee and milkshakes and sodas and other crap all day. Several healthy people, from all walks of life, https://buyarmodafinil.com/buy-smart-pills/waklert-modalert-superior-pack/ use Waklert off-label due to its cognitive-enhancing effects. It’s more favorable on how it is being metabolized in the body.
