I love mountain storms...We had about 6 inches of snow overnight and wind blown drifts today. There is such beauty when the snow is fresh and pristine. Pines with snow covered branches, snow piled up on the roof of the bird feeder and the fence rails, and the wind blowing hard enough to form white dunes in the pastures. This is a picture of the approaching storm, blowing in from the west over St. Mary's Peak in the Bitterrot Mountains of western Montana.
