This week I attempted to go hiking yet ran into the snow pack again so I retreated down to the Yellowstone River for some easy photographic work and captured these shots.
|There is something about a lonely tree that I like.|
|The snow is still formidable along the Yellowstone River with the Absaroka-Beartooth Mountain Range|
in the background.

These photos are from two weeks ago when I went for a drive into the Paradise Valley and could not get into the hiking trail where I was headed on account of the snow still way to deep for my truck to traverse.
I was lucky I did not as a vicious storm moved in from the west. The thermometer dropped 20 degrees in just ten minutes and in came the howling wind with hail and snow. I sat on a overlook and captured the front of the storm.
|The storm was like a monster movie.|
