There's still a lot of snow at 9000 feet, as we found on our Lake Mountain ride this week. The white mound in the background is Marsh Peak, 12,200 feet, part of the Uinta Mountain chain.
We'll take this ride again in a month. By then, there should be green grass, flowers, and leaves on the aspens.

Look at your sky, so beautiful, so blue with the puffy clouds, perfect.ReplyDelete
How beautiful, Janie, and you're lookin' real good on Mischief there. I can almost hear the music from those old westerns! :o) Happy SkyWatch!ReplyDelete
Oh wow, what a nice place to be in!ReplyDelete
Beautiful photo, lovely sky.ReplyDelete
Mary Elizabeth @ Now and Then

Have a great weekend.

I popped in from SkyWatch when I saw you were another Utahn. I'm also jealous. I sold my horse when we moved to Salt Lake City and I miss riding. My current location has no place for one either. I'll just have to live vicariously through others. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Another beautiful vista from your neck of the woods. You must never want to get off that horse.ReplyDelete
The wide open spaces look so beautiful...are those all aspens ...must be gorgeous when they are yellow...ReplyDelete
What a lovely photo - wish I was there with you in those wide open spaces!!!ReplyDelete
just so enjoy your captures...beautiful shot...looking forward to the flowers and green.ReplyDelete
have a great weekend.
The clouds reflect the snow on the mountains. Another beautiful ride.ReplyDelete
Wow---you all really got up high up in the mountains on this trip, didn't you???? Glad Daisy had some snow to eat/drink!!!! haReplyDelete
Glad the snow is gradually melting up there --so you can make it up... I assume you'll go up to over 12,200 ft. in the summer. Right???? Wow!!!!
Beautiful, but I look forward to seeing the leaves on the aspen. I bet it's breath taking in fall.ReplyDelete
Looks like another great ride!ReplyDelete
Beautiful photo and what a lovely, refreshing ride. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Coming from a non mountainous part of the world, it's hard to believe that that's an April landscape. I like the slightly barren elegance of it. I look forward to seeing what it looks like in summer!ReplyDelete
The snow is a great counterpoint to the clouds in the sky, but I'm glad (and hopeful) that all of our snow is gone!ReplyDelete
Simply beautiful. Are those aspen trees in the background?ReplyDelete
Clear, crisp, beautiful, wild, and free. Everything comes together just right ... horse and rider, snowy mountainous beckoning landscape with matching flowy clouds creating a memorable skyscape.ReplyDelete
The surrounding landscape makes the sky interesting. It's the combination of the two. And your photo is beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for your visit.ReplyDelete
Beautiful sky. I love your blue sky. Have a nice day..ReplyDelete
Janie: What a wonderful capture at the high altitude, nature at its finest.ReplyDelete
I just love your whole blog. The stories,and photos are fabulous.ReplyDelete
horse backriding, nice.. snowy place yet dear and warm skyReplyDelete
HISTORY of SUPERNOVA and SWEETPAINANGELS IN MY LIFEThanks!
I'm about to lose hope in the snow melting at 9000 feet, LOL. Great photo!ReplyDelete
Nice clouds above you.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous picture of the snow, bare trees, and mountains. I hope that you take another picture when you return.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the post--those of us who love Big Sky, prairie, and mountains can put up with the long winters. Our snow is mostly gone until you get to 8,000 feet or so--good news for happy trout come August!ReplyDelete
I'm not surprised there was still snow at that high altitude as the we in central Ontario had snow in shady spots not that long ago.ReplyDelete
The sky is very pretty!
Beautiful and cold! :-) Greetings from the warm season in West Africa!ReplyDelete
We'll be coming through Utah in about a week on our way to CA - can't wait. Looks as though your snow is getting patchy - even at altitude.
