Hers & hers

Temple and her mama, Piedra.

She’s her mama, and she’s her daughter. Piedra and Temple.





Sparkle in her eye

Temple and mama Piedra, sunset.

Lovely Temple with mama Piedra. Still fuzzy, and no wonder! We just got snow!

If you’re anywhere close to Denver – or not but watching the news – not THAT much snow. Not anywhere close to that much snow. I can measure mine in inch, and no, that’s not a typo and I don’t mean inches. It might have been an inch and a half. But it’s better than no inch at all, and it brought mud, which means it soaked in. Lovely moisture. relief.





Snow run

Comanche's and Hollywood's bands.

Comanche brings up the rear of a mix of his and Hollywood’s bands: Juniper, Madison, Kestrel, Temple and Piedra. Pre-dawn a week or so ago.

Piedra at sunset.

Gorgeous girl in golden light. She makes my heart sing.





Walking ahead

Piedra and daughter Temple.

Temple will be a year old in April. In this image, she followed mama Piedra, grazed with her and then walked ahead. Forging her own way in the world. Figuratively, still, at this point. Our babies are growing up!





-8 and be there

20 12 2012

Not quite as iconic as Galen Rowell’s oft-quoted “f8 and be there” – nor, I suspect, will it become as universal. But at minus 8 degrees this morning, I was there, in the basin, in paradise turned white.

Seven; hill to the back right is the eastern side of Flat Top.

Seven in winter’s wonderland.

Hollywood's band

Hollywood’s band walking away from the noise of a truck. What kind of crazy person would be out here on a minus-8-degree morning?

Oh, right. 🙂

Aurora

Aurora with her band. For extra credit, name the horse in the background attached to those gorgeous stripes! (Aurora’s daddy, Bounce, whom she resembles so strikingly, is following the bands.)

The temperature didn’t get above about 22 degrees today. Snow-lasting temps. I love it.
