|Mountainside frost in Guernsey State Park this morning|
I often wonder how the mountain men and early explorers handled winter. I have read the stories but am not sure they can relate how tough it must have been.

Winter can be hard, but it also can be beautiful - as it was today on this frosty Wyoming morning.
Meanwhile, I am into a rewrite on a novel I put away several years ago. I am having fun with it and so far am pretty happy with the story. I am also continuing my research for my Fort Laramie book. Research is slow but fascinating.
