The classic strawberry mountain range is always a photographer's dream, no matter the season. The shots below are just a few of many taken on a winter's drive along Highway 26 above Prairie City in February.

Also in January, we were treated to a hoar frost nature display. One of the simplest explanations for hoar frost is frozen dew that forms a white coating on a surface. Trees, brush, weeds, wire fences and fence posts are suddenly transformed from the mundane to magical as they are painted in nature's array of ice crystals. The frosty wonderland slowly disappeared as the day warmed. But for a while, it was great to view the sights that took on new life in this splendid coat of white crystal.

... God attracts our minds to himself by his supreme beauty and incomprehensible goodness
... So God, Father of all light, supremely good and beautiful, by his beauty draws our intellect to
... and by his goodness he draws our will to love him."
See you on Monday, March 17th, which by the way, is St. Patrick's Day.
