Kim and I have an annual tradition of spending time at the Niobrara Valley Preserve during Christmas break. This year, we were particularly excited to see a forecast of 10-14 inches of snow during our visit and we made sure to arrive before the snow. We hoped to get pleasantly snowed in for a few days and then catch a little sunshine for some good hiking and photography before we came back home. The snow was a little disappointing – only 4-5 inches – but the trip has been fantastic.
Yesterday, I took a walk out into the blowing snow to stretch my legs and take a few photos. This morning, the snow and sky had lightened up quite a bit and I took the truck out to look for bison while Kim slept in a little. As I write this, the sun is coming out and it looks like a great day for an afternoon hike. I hope the rest of you are having as much fun as we are this week… Here are a few photos from the last couple days.
