Frozen in time
Ferns frozen inside this icicle.
On the ridge
At the top of the San Juan ridge, the terrain is amazingly different from just 1000 feet lower.
Beautiful alpine lake, surrounded by silence and sunshine. Soon this area will be under more than 6 feet of snow.
Strike a pose..LOL!!!
Home Sweet Home
Kitchen is ready, just needs some grub!
Hiking up Defile chute.
Slip and slide!
The frost on these logs made them treacherous!
Misery likes our Company
Glassy smooth and 2 inches thick.
Frozen into the lake, the little dock at Noyse Lake is settled in awaiting for next summer.
Chickadee in the trees
Chestnut backed chickadee's came to visit us, making all kinds of noise.
Happy patterns in the ice.
Crapper in the Sky
Raised up high to avoid the coming snow pack, this outhouse has a big first step out!
Noyse Lake Cabin
It's steeper than it looks!
Icicles, sunshine, and moss covered rocks. What a great scene!
Golden Grass, Kissed by the Frost
Upper Noyse Lake
18 degrees on the back deck..9 degrees in the valley below.
No, I am not a giant. Just a small doorway.
Heading higher on the trail, entering the sub alpine terrain. Reminds me of Newfoundland and home.
Easy does it...
Frost, wet logs and hiking boots make this a tricky spot.
Bring your skates!
The ice on the lake was incredibly smooth!
