I have been spending a lot of time in the mountains lately.
Even though the landscape is frozen, it is still beautiful to me.
Here are some fresh mountain lion tracks.
Some of the best views can be seen from atop a mountain.
In the spring, the male deer and elk drop their antlers. Then they grow new ones in the spring. It is fun to hike the hills where they have been and try to find them.
I love the smell of the sagebrush hills; not fully awake yet.
There are signs of spring and contrasts such as bright green, velvety moss peeking through a blanket of melting snow and twisted sagebrush.
