Cold Springs Ranch: First Snow of the Season, November 19, 2000

First Snow of the Season - November 19, 2000

At last we finally had our first real snow of the season. We had snow flurries on October 2, but no accumulation. And since this was the first real snow since I've moved into my house, I got kind of carried away with the video today so there are lots of pictures on this page! Instead of usual "week of" pages I decided to devote a whole page to one day.

We spent most of the morning inside watching it snow. My friend Kenny came up later on in the day so we went for a hike around the house and then up to the nearby mountain top.

We woke up this morning to a winter wonderland outside. Here Timber is checking out the view from my bedroom upstairs.

It finally made it up to the high of the day, 30 degrees!

Timber was having a real good time!

Kenny is getting ready to head back up the trail.

Some of the rock formations on the Ranch.

Here's the scene of the house as we come back from our hike.

We decided to drive up to the mountain top on the Ranch. Here is a view of the Barn and Pond.

Another view of the Pond.

A spectacular view of the Smokies from the top...

... and another.

Here's a view of a near by landmark mountain...

... and a close up.

Here, Timber is mousing on the mountain top.

He's having a great time.

He heard a mouse inside this tree trunk

Here's the house as we come back from the mountain top. The sun is already setting on the house.

After all the hiking Timber still wants to go outside.

What a sweet dog.

After the sun set a thick fog formed as the temperature fell back below the dew point.

This is looking from the front porch to the back yard and woods.

Looking down the front porch.

You can barely see the garage from the front porch!

Back inside it's warm and cozy. Now to grill some steaks for supper!
