Wintry Wyoming Weather

Right now there is absolutely no snow on my grass, since it has melted away (much to the boys' dismay). However on our weekend trip to my parent's house in Wyoming there was plenty of snow, fog, and frost. It was so foggy during our stay that there was one day where we didn't see the sun at all! So of course I had to take advantage of it and snap some photos.

Here is a picture of a silo in the snow as the fog was clearing.


We don't usually get frost as heavy as they do in Wyoming. But then again, they spend a lot more time below freezing than we do! So although I think the frost is beautiful, I don't really want to see a whole lot more of it!

I love the way the frost outlined everything... seed pods, leaves, and limbs. Poor cold trees!



Isn't the frost gorgeous? It makes me feel all wintry and ready for Christmas! All I need now is some hot chocolate with a candy cane in it- yum! Well, I guess I will have to soak up as much of that wintry feeling as I can from these pictures, since we will be leaving in a little while to spend our Christmas in Arizona.

But then again, maybe warm weather, palm trees and cacti are not such a bad thing after all. Check out the first part of our drive home from Wyoming back to Utah... talk about scary.


We made it home just fine, and hopefully we won't encounter any weather and roads like this on our trip to Tucson!

  4. Beautiful shots! I love it when the frost outlines nature too. I also love it when the snow sticks to tree branches, it looks so pretty. I know it's bad for the trees though. Have a warm and safe drive!
