Spring Thaw.. (5 pics)
Posted By: mtnbearhug, 03-23-2008, 09:16 PM

Was supposed to go camping this weekend but my camp spot still has snow!!!!!!! (sniff sniff.).. so ended up at the dads house... Went for a walk and got some "ok" spring thaws.....

The dads house... (This is house was actually built 1915)... it is darn near 100!! and still standing strong!!


Just some simple thawing... nothing special..




The view West of my dads place.. The mtn are even closer on the East side!


Last but not least... Mud puddles... Got to love'em!!!!


Thanks for lookin!!! Nothing to extravagant, yet hopefully not boring.. .. going campin tomorrow for sure where the IS NO SNOW!!! LOL See ya all wednesday..

Hey, those pics look familiar. Maybe that's because that's more or less what it looks like here: Still a bunch of snow around, but lots of puddles, too. (The locals call this "mud season.")

They look good to me Kim,

Your little man looks like he's having fun in the puddles

It wasn't camping weather here either. We got a little snow, and even a little rain. Plus it's been cold and windy.
I should fix the heater in my motorhome, and camp in there from time to time

Nice series Kim - great old house and view - your son is not wearing rubber boots ! Ahh with rubber boots that is a free ticket for all puddles ! While I like spring for new beginnings the melt down and mud and dirt are a little rough the first few weeks.

Very nice spring mood in this series! English not being my native language, I am not sure what thaw means, something to do with melting snow, perhaps?

Your photography style is getting more melodramatic.

#1 and #4 are my favorite.

The good thing about motorhomes Stu is they are GREAT for camping in the rain and cold!!! !LOL.. get the puppy plugged in and get out there..!!!! LOL

I have to say that my son takes after me in the water puddle catagory... I have a hard time staying out fo them as well... Same thing with fresh snow... I have to make a track design.. I just cant help myself!! LOL
