Presentation of the flag prior to the skijoring competition at the annual (and this year quite cold) Wild West Winterfest at the fairgrounds in Bozeman. It was so cold and the event so unorganized that we left after waiting two hours for it to get going. It was a timed event that couldn’t seem to start on time.
This photo as a very similar look and feel as the image Making Tracks from February 6th. The interesting thing about the comparison is that, while the previous post was a close-up view of mouse or other small critter tracks, today’s photo is of elk, deer or other large mammal tracks taken from a couple hundred yards away.
This photo was actually taken several weeks ago when a five o’clock shadow would have been much longer due to the shorter days. A five o’clock shadow today might look like this except that all the recent snow has buried these cattails under a couple feet of snow.
Five below zero, with snow coming down outside this morning. This is another one of those days where I struggle with embracing winter via the POTD selection or seeking escapism by posting something less winteresque. Embracing the season won out again, but just barely.
