My heart is bound to the mountains, my feet are rooted in the forest, my soul soars above treeline, all of nature runs through my veins.

I've known Alex since he was born. He's an amazing photographer, specializing in star tracks and night sky images. These metal prints are absolutely gorgeous! Here's the link for a closer look: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1883107725348349/
My brother shot these images earlier this summer. They are dye sublimation prints on metal. They come with hanging brackets and Hardware. $200 for the smaller ones and $350 for the larger print.

To quote Open Snow, IT'S ABOUT TO SNOW - A LOT
Flurries today (Tuesday, 1/3), increasing to periods of heavy snow through Wednesday and Thursday - potential for OVER 2 FEET in Silverthorne by Friday morning (January 6). Sunshine returns for the weekend.
PLEASE DRIVE RESPONSIBLY IN A VEHICLE THAT IS APPROPRIATE FOR THE CONDITIONS!

"Bluebird of Happiness" ~ The first spring bluebird of 2012, captured as he perched on a rustic fence. I processed this image in an Impressionistic style, the warm, bold colors in contrast to the wintry weather. Fantastic as giclée on wood, or choose from note cards, mugs, totes, and more. https://goo.gl/tmjQgg

IN THE PAST 10 DAYS, WE HAVE PLOWED OVER 5 FEET OF SNOW! Go hug your plow person - or at least give them a friendly wave and thumbs up. Considering that in an average winter, we plow a total of 12 feet, that puts it into perspective how hard all the plow people, private and municipal, have been working the past week and a half. In Silverthorne, the snow pack went from 52% to 110% in TEN DAYS! Today, we were pushing not only 12"-18" of heavy, wind-driven snow, but also battling the 3-ft ice berms pushed up by the road plows. The municipal plows have no choice but to push up the berms - otherwise they'd never get all the roads cleared. But it does make for a lot of extra work on an already intense day. We have a few days of sunshine on tap now, which will give us time for cleanups and push-backs. Get out there and enjoy all that fresh snow, and be safe in the back country, the avalanche danger is extreme.

Snow, Snow, and More Snow! ~ On December 1, Silverthorne snow precipitation was at 52% of average. Now, two weeks later, we are at 90%!* The series of storms over the next few days should push us close to 100%. So, in spite of the late start to winter, once it decided to get going, it has been a nearly non-stop powder train. Yay for snow!
