I'm dreaming of a white.... Halloween?

I just got back this morning from a 3 day retreat for my work. We were about 70 miles from home. Just 2 miles from Yellowstone Park. The last two days it snowed. It was very pretty. We stayed at Pahaska Tepee- the hunting lodge of Buffalo Bill Cody. Here is a picture of the original lodge. We stayed in more modern cabins. On Thursday it was very exciting to see a huge big silver-backed grizzley bear right across the street from the lodge. Unfortunately I did not have my camera or cell phone with me but he was a magnificent animal. We also had a little fox hang outside the mess hall looking for a handout. This morning he caught himself a duck. Coming back down the mountain I found no snow in the Big Horn Basin. Happy about that. But winter has hit Yellowstone. At least for the weekend.

Driving back home this morning, it looked like a winter wonderland.....

I have to admit that I like Autumn more...not much of a snow-kind-of-girl!

You can take the girl out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the girl....
With winter upon us and snow to follow, I really miss sunny So Cal!

There was quite a bit of snow here yesterday...I'm getting really scared at what this means for winter.
