Winter Storm Thor roared through North Texas last night, dropping over four inches of snow and leaving us basking in a winter wonderland this morning. I walked our neighborhood earlier today and took several shots of our snowfall. This is looking down one of the fairways of the Sky Creek Ranch Golf Club as viewed from Bear Creek Parkway here in Keller. Golf anyone?

I’ll spare the details. Suffice it to say that our flight home from Denver was cancelled, and with no air options available on Saturday, we took to the roadways. The drive was uneventful until we hit north Texas and road conditions rapidly deteriorated. They were at their worst in Wichita Falls, and the many bridges we had to traverse were quite hazardous. Thankfully, God answered our prayers for safety and we returned our rental car at DFW Airport just after midnight Sunday morning.

Now THAT’s a hat, and it even matches her braid! This lady caught all sorts of attention when she walked into the bar at Grand Lodge at Peak 7. And I wasn’t the only one snapping pictures, either.

Now THAT’s a hat! Breckenridge 2.25.2015
My winter mountain adventure with IMA continues as we’ve relocated to beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado. We spent part of yesterday afternoon at the Grand Lodge on Peak 7, where several in our party arranged for their rental equipment for today’s skiing. I haven’t skied in years, but it sure is tempting, especially considering the fresh snow that awaits! It is breathtakingly beautiful here!

I have never visited the Rocky Mountains during winter until now. The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful in every direction. This is the view from my balcony at Devil’s Thumb Ranch near Winter Park, Colorado. Looking at this I see evidence of our Creator’s handiwork all around me. Soli Deo Gloria!
Before the mountains were born Or You gave birth to the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. ~ Psalm 90:2
