Thankful Tuesdays: snow-covered trees edition

Photobucket If you checked in yesterday, then you know winter has already arrived in Jasper. We had a weekend of beautiful snow. There isn't a ton yet, but I still took the time to enjoy what little we have on Sunday afternoon. I went for a short drive and a little stroll near Patricia Lake and just took in the beauty of the sun reflecting off Jasper's newly installed white carpet.

Photobucket There is just something about the first snowfall of the year. Everything looks so pristine and calm under a fresh layer of snow. And, for some reason, everything seems so still and quiet. I love that silence, the sound of crunching snow under my feet and the crisp air of winter. And, I'm thankful to live in a place where I can enjoy all of those things.

Photobucket Do you get snow where you are? What's your favourite thing about the first snowfall of the season?

  1. I'm so jealous of your snow--I'm too close to sealevel and salt water for any kind of consistent snow. Our first dusting (and often only dusting) happens around (American) Thanksgiving in late November, and then we usually have extra cold late January and Februaries

  4. Thank you. Thank you. You just got me so eager/excited for that beauty-view of winter (we're still in the soppy.rain.season). I love your winter wonderland postcard view lucky lady!

    Side.note: You are one consistent blogger... I can almost bet my top dollar that when I sit down here after lunch hour chaos.. there will be a NEW view from you! Way to go idaho! (NO pressure to keep me happy.. just sayin.) ;o)

    P.S... where's that friggin' mail? Watch yo' mailbox!

  5. We got a little snow in Edmonton but it melted away pretty quickly. I'm looking forward to the first real snow of the season -- the kind that lasts and means you get to wear winter boots. ;) Of course I'm only a fan as long as it isn't actively snow storming on me while I'm waiting for a bus. We live very close to public transportation so we're hoping that means the roads will stay plowed!

  6. I am so jealous of your beautiful town! San Diego is still in the 70s/80s and it just does not feel like fall.

    PS - I nominated you for a Liebster! check it out here :)

  7. We definitely get snow (despite what happened last year- hardly any) and I love how hushed everything gets when the snow is on the ground. Why am I craving winter?! It's so weird!

  8. So beautiful!! I am excited for snow, although I know that once winter arrives I will regret saying that.

  9. Beautiful!! we are forecast snow over here by the end of the week. Pretty exciting. I love when snow first starts falling and rushing to the window the next morning to see how much has fallen.

    cant wait

  10. Wow those photos are stunning - I particularly love the first one. I'm not looking forward to the first snowfall here in Massachusetts. Last year it was on Halloween and that was a bit miserable haha

  12. I live in a city the sits in Texas and Arkansas. We get one "snow" (a strange heavy slushy icy mixture) a year. When it flurries, the whole area shuts down!

  14. Oh my goodness I am so jealous of your snow covered trees! We are all of a sudden in a heatwave over here. It's been 80 the past two days, even though it was in the 40s just a couple of days before that! I think Lady Winter and Sir Summer are having a bit of a squabble right now, hopefully they get their act together soon!
