Strawberry in winter



Last week I had to drive to Provo for my monthly work training.  I lucked out and traveled between snow storms.  There's a stretch that is often treacherous between here and there but the roads were clear. On the way home I stopped to take a picture of Strawberry Reservoir.  It's starting to ice over and is a popular place for crazy people who like to ice fish in the winter.



My apologies to My World blogging friends for lack of comments lately and few posts--I can't keep up with my life and Christmas at the same time!

Very nice landscape in the winter!

"Crazy people who like to ice fish!" Seriously! Are the fish not there in the summer?

I totally understand about the holidays. Honestly, how some people keep up with blogging now is beyond me!

Whatever you're doing for the holidays is making memories. Blogging probably isn't!

Beautiful pictures of Strawberry Reservoir, Loran... I like seeing them in all seasons. What a gorgeous place --but I would NOT be fishing there for sure--in winter. I have to keep hiking in order to stay warm.

Hugs,
Betsy

Glad you had a safe trip, too, Loran! Love your photos! Really great shot of the reservoir, but I do think I'll pass on the ice fishing!! Very peaceful looking though. With your house full I'm amazed at just how much you do get done! Just glad you find some time to share with us!!

Hope you have a great week. Enjoy and stay warm!

We have a reservoir near us in Idaho Springs where people go onto the ice in cars and set up ice fishing shacks. Not me - way too cold and kinda dangerous just to fish, I think! Have a good Holiday!

I noticed Strawberry was freezing around the edges last week, too.
Always makes me shiver to see the ice fishermen out there in Jan-Feb.
I'm having trouble keeping up, too. I suspect it's a common problem.
