Seasonal changes

Brad and I took Tok on one of our favorite, small hikes around Fort Abercrombie. We start the loop at Lake Gertrude and then head around to the Wildflower Trail. The latter trail provided me with some amazing photos this summer, include the one below that showcases the purple explosion of wildflowers during the summer.
And then yesterday, we see the same trail in it's winter glory: brown as far as the eye can see. The area is dotted with some leftover buds from wild roses, marking the distinct bunny trails through the vines (Tok sniffed each and every one we passed). People remark how we "deal" with the winter and the somewhat harsh winter weather.

Simple: we start looking up at those snow covered mountains! Come on, snow!
