Snapshot:32

steamboat springs, co / february 2007

As proof that I don't solely boo-hoo about bidding farewell to summer, I do love me some snow. I have even been labeled the 'queen of snow' (personally I prefer princess). This ski/ boarding trip to Colorado a few years ago was probably the most snow I have ever seen... it was crazy and just plain awesome.

I know, I know... we still have all the wonders of fall to enjoy, but at the first sign of a sweater I start doing a snow dance. This is fair warning!

  1. Amazing photo Lilly...I love caravans and I think there is one in there under the snow!? I have never seen 'real' snow.

    1. Yes Airstream's are wonderful, we always talk about getting one when we 'retire' except typically architects never really retire :) You've never seen snow?! Oh my goodness, you need to- it's fun stuff.

  2. I grew up where there were TONS of snow, so I kind of had enough. Nowadays I´m totally fine with just a little. :-)

  3. We get a wee bit of snow every year, but its nothing compared to what I used to see in upper northern California. I had a friend up in Strawberry {Dharma Dave, we used to call him-- ski bum in winter, beach bum in summer & a smoke jumper in between} who I would visit often. At winter time the whole area would pretty much shut down to all but the most intrepid skiers, with paths like mazes weaving around the town-- with snow walls 6 foot tall on either side-- most cool!

  4. Oh, I'm with you! I love all of it and Fall is such a great anticipation for Winter and holidays. I love snow through and through.

  5. Having grown up in Utah I, too, love snow..... but snow for a purpose like skiing or snowboarding or snowshoeing... the crazy amounts of snow we had here in Boston two winters ago was just obnoxious!!

    Cool Airstream!

  6. Great shot, but to tell you the truth, I don't like snow. I live for 13 years in a very cold climate. 30 miles from Arctic circle, and had had enough snow for the rest of my life! :)

  7. I love snow also! We lived through "snowpocolypse" in Washington, DC when the whole city shut down... we had a great time. I can see you, the outdoors-woman, tromping through some snow with your guys!

  8. I love white fluffy snow like this, but it's when it turns all gray and slushy on the ground that I hate it. and winter lasts far too long in my home city. so I'll enjoy the end of summer and all of autumn as much as I can :)

  9. You are scaring me, sweetheart. I am not a fan of snow, unless I am indoors by the fireplace with a cup of tea.
