Cold Country

January calendar for you ...


A little winter break has taken us from the Rain City to Cold Country. The photo above was taken just west of Spokane, Washington, along Interstate 90. The shot seemed like a good candidate for a January calendar page. The pic below shows some really tall trees along the highway in Idaho. Heavy snowfall in late December created quite a winter coat.

Bluest sky ever?

Thank you for stopping by John's Island.

  2. Beautiful country John! You're right that they make beautiful calendar photos. From time to time I think about using my photos to make calendars to give as gifts. But I haven't done it yet.

  10. So that's where you got off to, John. Pretty, but it does look cold. We've been having our own cold times here lately, with snow on the ground yesterday for the first time this winter. Pretty, but I prefer rain! It doesn't make me slip and fall. :-)

  11. Here is a little trivia for you. The calendar of 1932 is the same as 2016.

  14. Lovely snow scenes! The trees are beautiful. I particularly like your last photo though. There's a house near me that has a very similar design/structure, but it's not in as nice of condition.
