A few minutes ago... Chisos... Snow...
« on: November 25, 2007, 08:23:08 AM »
I thought I would wake up to inches of snow here in Terlingua... instead I had to look at this scenery again... and again... What a chore!!! :eusa_drool:







Someone has to do it!!! I just don't see any of you guys here!!! Might have to ride up and check it out closely... NOT COLD by the way... Don't you have someking of a opening for a "permanent contact" here...? It is hard work but I think I can do it...

Be well...

Wish I were there in the snow.
Visiting BB since 1966, nothing like being lost and finding heaven.

I read about the snow in another forum. High temps one day, snow the next!

BiBe is somewhat unpredictable, yes?

Just got back from a camping trip over Thanksgiving.  Interesting weather.  40mph winds on Wednesday night, freezing rain hiking down from the rim on Saturday morning.  About 5 inches of snow in Marathon on the way out (we stayed the night by the fire at the Gage...)

Glad to see you over here! Thanks for sharing your story at Texas Photo Forum as well. Is this story in your blog as well?

Wonderful pictures!  Your attitude of fun shines through - maybe even enough to melt the snow ; ) :eusa_clap:
