Snow up high and rain moving in down low along the Buffalo Fork of the Snake River in Wyoming. Fall colors in the Valley and dark clouds up high portend the early arrival of old man winter.
Last Sunday the wind was blowing hard but that did not deter these little Tree Swallows from spending their day looking for a suitable summer residence and it sure seemed like box 29 was high on their list of desirable homes.
The competition was high and words of caution we flying as freely as these swallows glide through the skies.
A quick resting spot on the roof was in order and acceptable to both shoppers at box 29.

This year winter has yet to really visit me or I to visit it.
Bad timing with the jet stream, el nino, global warming or just too much time at work?
Anyway, I just felt the need needed to post a bit of winter today before it has gone for good, well at least this year.
A wonderful winter’s afternoon in Yellowstone National Park, 2013.
