We got snow!! I live in Upstate South Carolina, and even though we’re in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we don’t get a decent snow very often. Usually if we get winter precipitation, it’s either rain or freezing rain (which turns into a solid sheet of ice, takes out the electricity, and leaves us homebound because we have to descend a rather steep hill to get out to the main road). However, last year we got a nice amount of real live snow, and this year it happened again! Last weekend we got about 4 inches. While snow is not my favorite thing in the world and my younger siblings were far more excited about it than I was, even I have to admit that it was really pretty and I enjoyed looking at it, taking pictures of it, and sledding in it….
We have a few decent sledding hills, but attaching a sled to the back of the Ranger was definitely a hit with the kids!
Ash, our blue heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) puppy definitely enjoyed the activities. This was her first snow experience, and she dearly loved it.
Like good southerners, we used baling twine to attach the sled to the Ranger. It worked for Nikki and Josh…
…but by the time Katelyn and I piled on, the twine decided it had had enough and kept snapping. 😛
Notice how many of the horse shots involve horses walking towards me. It’s impossible to go out in the pasture and take pictures without big noses in my camera lens! Rocky Mountain Horses are known for their “in your pocket” nature, which is a good thing for everything but photography.
This dog can be the bane of my existence at times, but at least she’s photogenic. 😛
