We did not get anywhere close to 6 inches of snow, but it did snow most of the day Saturday. The temperature dropped steadily (down to 14F (-10C) by lunchtime and 2F (-17C) at sunrise Sunday morning) and the winds howled around 20 mph (32kmph), so what was the perfect thing to do? Go walking around the ranch, of course. Here are some pictures from our walk.
The Herd out for a walk.
Rusty, of course, was out of frame of the first picture because he was off the side of the road playing.
Our neighbors at Cataloochee Ski were certainly happy to have some natural snow.
Our favorite tree looks majestic in all weather.
The ranch roads were quiet and great for walking.
This helps explain why the horses of the ranch are moved from these pastures to warmer climates for the winter.
The hu-dad seemed to be taking way too many pictures of empty pasture land.
That's more like it - a picture of the red team (the cars are overflow parking from the ski area).
