Winter Storm Jonas

Winter Storm Jonas definitely didn’t fall short of expectation. At least not in our area! We got hit with more than 24″ of snow in two days. And most of it fell Saturday.

Our area was actually experiencing a pretty warm winter up until recently. Then it started to get colder and eventually “crap hit the fan,” and winter decided to come all at once…

Saturday felt like a never-ending storm. Snow continued to pile up and the wind was relentless. But Sunday was like “the calm after the storm.” Although the shoveling wasn’t fun, the views were absolutely breathtaking. Here are a few shots from our backyard. Did I ever mention that I love this view?!

Ducks in the Snow

I don’t know about you, but where I live, we’re currently experiencing a Ducks in Winterwarm winter. I almost have to remind myself that it’s December. We’ve had highs in the 60’s. So I thought I’d take today to reflect back on past winters. This picture was taken in December of 2012. We had an incredible snowfall and decided it was the perfect excuse to get out the camera. This is one of my favorite shots of the ones we took. How often do you see  ducks in the snow?

Autumn Leaves

A couple years ago, my husband and I took a trip to the PA Wilds. The area is breathtaking during the fall color change. You can see vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds. It’s really quite remarkable. And now that fall is on its way out, it seems like a good time to remember the beautiful start of the season. So enjoy these awesome warm colors while you can and get ready to bundle up because winter is right around the corner.

 

Lookout Tower in the PA Wilds

Fall Colors PAA couple of years ago my husband and I took a fall road trip. One of the stops was The PA Grand Canyon, which offers breathtaking views. It’s a part of the Tioga State Forest and is located near Wellsboro. During our road trip, we found an overlook tower. It was set back in a wooded area. You had to put money through a machine to get in. It was definitely unique to say the least… But, totally worth it. The view was picturesque, especially with the fall foliage setting the canvas. We definitely recommend it if you’re planning a fall trip to see the leaves change. But if you don’t want to wait till fall, the PA Wilds is also a great place for summer camping. It’s a great trip for nature lovers and photography buffs.
