The Simplicity of Frozen Water

The clear, sunny days just keep coming.   The snow is holding up on the trails.  What a glorious week for the Yellowstone Ski Festival.

Such an amazingly simple formula — water frozen into snowflakes, icicles, frost.  Just a few degrees transforms water into a wonderland for winter sport.

Rendezvous Trails, West Yellowstone

The sun has been casting its dappled light across the ski trails, with the radiant sparkling crystals hanging in the treetops. Snow continues to cling stubbornly to the tree branches, struggling against the sun’s attempts to strip the branches clean.

Come February, when the novelty of winter has worn off, I will need to return to these words, and remind myself that every day holds a gift of beauty, if you take the time to look for it.
