Despite the beautiful blue sky behind the spruce tree that towers over the front of my house, tomorrow's forecast is for cold and wind. Since I figured the trees would be missing their snow covering by then, I grabbed my winter gear and headed out with the camera to focus on them for awhile, as opposed to my usual mountain fixation.
I did take the time, tho', to bop around my own yard, here looking out toward the back pasture and wondering why the sunshine wasn't making it's way out front yet.
This one and the next were taken down at the bottom of the hill, in the parking lot for the bike repair shop.
Oops, have this one outta order cos it was from my yard, looking up at the snow laden branches above me.
Back to the bike parking lot, looking across the street toward Idita-Park for this one and the next. They're both taken right alongside Nelson.
Onward to Home Depot's parking lot and some nice views.
As you can probably tell, this one is overlooking Parks Hwy. and Fred Meyers. The flat, white area to the rear is Wasilla Lake, now coated with snow.
I loved these trees. Home Depot should put lights on them!
Looking down the hill again. That's Parks Hwy. where the truck is passing by, then a Tesoro Station behind it. The intersection with Palmer-Wasilla Hwy. is just cut off to the right, but that is P-W Hwy. running sorta left/right. The brown building to the rear of it is one side of Target, then the mountains beyond.
Random shot out the car windshield #who knows, heading back toward Wasilla down Knik-Goose Bay Road.
A pit stop at the bank (Wells Fargo) for some cash and a shot of these lovelies alongside the drive-thru lane.
I talk about "my hill" lots. This is it as seen from the Wells Fargo back parking lot. I'm at the top, behind those trees a bit. Borden's condo along the bottom of the pix.
Pretty view down Nelson as I pull outta the parking lot where the last shot was taken. That big white thing is a snow-covered rock, not just a clump of snow.
I had the thought as I was heading home that I'm not sure I've shared the "going home" view of Lone Cub, just the "heading down the hill" shot (such as in the last entry), so here you go, Lone Cub as I head up the hill toward home. As you can see, we have the winter wonderland thing going on in our neighborhood.
I also have some ice going on. Okay, true, it isn't a tree, but it's overlooking the backyard where there are lots of trees, so it fits today's theme of trees....sorta. Ha
