There is a reason why I never leave home without a camera even when I just step out to feed my horses. Five minutes later the sun was down below the mountains.
Every year I am looking forward to the end of January. When the Moon, Venus and Neptune line up in the sky they seem to cause these amazing morning colors. I have taken many pictures over the years on that same day, but it was the most intense this morning.
Another storm has swept through the Wallowa Mountains leaving only a few inches of new snow on the Lower Alder Slope outside of Enterprise.
What can be more beautiful than stepping outside this morning feeding horses while God paints the heavens over Mt Joseph and Mt. Howard? Nothing… Another incredible day to be alive in God’s backyard and paradise.
Feeding in divine silence. The massive wind storm has passed and the air is filled with crisp, renewed energy.
Late November, we finally are seeing six inches of snow right before Thanksgiving. To the left is Mount Joseph, in the middle Ruby Peak. Both are part of the Wallowa Mountains in the Eagle Cap Wilderness
Ruby Peak, located in the Wallowa Mountains, is listed as the 40th highest mountain in Oregon by Oregon’s 100 Highest Peaks.
