On the Mountain


Yesterday we took a drive to take in some of the beauty of the Winter. You can't help but notice this rock when driving down the mountain but this time I couldn't help but notice how it stood out because the snow melted from the warmth of the rock.

Some of you asked about the Mexican chocolate that I post last week. Take a look at this wonderful blog for a great post.

avec cette neige si blanche, on pourrait croire a une sculpture

i see tiny footprints in the snow :)

Lúcia said...

What a nice white carpet! ;-)

Sharon said...

It does stand out out all clean and dry!

Teresa said...

This rock found the perfect place to sunbathe!

Kate said...

Snow seems to be everywhere, but the rock knows how to protect itself! Followed your link and had an interesting time surfing those blogs.

Luis Gomez said...

Awesome!

parker said...

A very noticeable rock indeed! Well captured.

Thanks for the Mexican Hot Chocolate link. All the grocery stores will wonder about the large volume increase in sales of this product!

Thérèse said...

Like a beacon in the snow!

Halcyon said...

Cool formation!

TexWisGirl said...

as long as it stays perched up there and doesn't tumble down on you!

Sonya Heilmann said...

It almost looks like someone just set it there on top of the snow.

Oh, and thanks . . . I'm going to be thinking about Mexican hot chocolate and churros all day, now. ;)

Dawn said...

The warmth of a rock- who would have thought?
Beautiful place there!

lifeisaroadtrip said...

Have you ever been tempted to walk up and give it a push? :-)

Eyeliquor said...

Super!
Well seen Randy :)

Magpie said...

It gets just that much more sun to warm away the snow. Good eye, Randy. I'm off to check out the chocolate link. :) Have a great week.

Lois said...

It looks like it might topple down at any second!

Sandy said...

Isn't nature amazing? Your amazing too! Thanks for complementing my blog Randy! You're the best! =)

RedPat said...

It's funny how that happens - I've noticed it around tree trunks too. Nice one!

cieldequimper said...

It looks like it's about to roll down!

Now that chocolate does sound delicious but I had to a) smile that the brand is Swiss and b) therefore wonder why we don't have it here!!!!

VP said...

That's a lot of snow!

Marty said...

the energy of a rock ! love this shot!

Jack said...

You came across a special and peaceful spot, Randy.

jennyfreckles said...

I still find it somewhat perverse that you, who are so much nearer the equator, still get snow so early. You must be high up.

Lowell said...

That's interesting...looks like the rock got a little more sun than things around it. Maybe that's what I need - a little more sun. I think I'll start playing golf more often!

Regina K said...

Looks like a serene setting

Michaele said...

Great link there. Love the pictures. I wanted to make this last week but couldn't find the ingredients. I will keep looking ; )

Ms. Becky said...

whoa, I think there's something wrong with Blogger. this is so tiny I cannot see it! at any rate, I hope can read it! we still have no snow here and I'm wanting some very much. lovely photo Randy. it has great shadows. have a great evening.

becky said...

I've stopped near here a few times to photograph fall colors. I haven't been up the ski hill road since the last snow- much more up there than down here...
