Snowy Peaks

Coming back from our walk with the dogs on Wednesday, I snapped these photos.  The mountains are beautiful right now with fresh snow.  This is Mt. Robie Reid, looking north.  The Fraser river would be out of sight below the trees in the front of the photo.  The sun was just about to set.

Everyone refers to these peaks as Golden Ears, but actually the left peak is Golden Ears, the right one is Edge Peak

And then just before we got home, this is the view from our neighbours, a quarter mile up the road from us.  

On Thursday we met Jeff and Pippin out on Sumas Prairie and went for a walk on the dyke.  It was quite windy and cold. 

The scenery is beautiful though.
That's Mt. Cheam on the left, with Lady Peak or Dogface to the right of Cheam.  Apparently Lady was the name of the dog:)  So far I haven't been able to find out if the other peaks have names.

 I always find the ice crystals fascinating.  Too bad they weren't in better focus.

The crystals here are shaped like little leaves

We have this view of Mt. Robie Reid from the top of our back hayfield.  Unfortunately we can't see it from the house.  Golden Ears is off to the left (west), and is mostly hidden by trees.

And in that back hayfield, smart horses stand where it is most sheltered and soak up the warmth of the sun.

And all the animals appreciate a bucket of warm water put out for them.

We are enjoying this sunny frozen weather.  The mud is frozen, there are bits of snow here and there, and the dogs are much cleaner.  Well other than Luna, who rolled in something disgusting when we were at the dyke yesterday, and had to have a bath when she got home.

And here we are at the end of 2010.
May 2011 meet your hopes and expectations.
Happy New Year!
