On a day promising to be chilly, windy, and maybe snowing, the dogs and I went to the mountains. Well, more like close-to the highest points because they’re still snow-covered. Not daring to risk driving on snowy roads, we stuck to clear areas, lower near the Deschutes River.
In this transitional period there’s plenty of breathtaking landscape.
The unpaved off-roads in after-winter awful condition are ditchy, bumpy, and difficult to navigate. After stopping several times to walk and having to struggle my Jeep back to pavement, we finally found a road more comfortable for driving and parking, and did.
Finding ourselves near a worn horse trail, we took that natural beautiful path into the forest.
As promised, a light snow fell in the mountains. We got caught.
Just because, it’s nearly impossible to resist photographing this interesting fellow.
Dear Friends: This delightful, refreshing outing has encouraged more hiking soon. Diana
