So apparently, it isn’t JUST saguaro cacti throughout the entire state of Arizona. This is stuff you know, but never think about. Aside from taking these photos, I think I hid out inside the whole weekend that we were in Pinetop – not really prepared for this level of winter when I came to Arizona for Christmas!
I can’t complain though, because coming from the Midwest, I am a huge believer in the whole “if you’re gonna snow, go all out for crying out loud” winter philosophy. And this made my inner-Midwesterner very, very happy. Feet of snow, people – it had been many years since I had been trudging through feet of snow. It all seems to make everything quieter, more serene and peaceful. Not to mention what a thing of beauty those icicles are, as long as you’re not standing underneath them when they’re falling from the roof.
Speaking of beauty, check out Sandy up there – only a few weeks old and already a major ham. She’s an internet star over on Striped Cat Studio’s Dog Stalking series, not to mention the calendar she’s currently shooting. Above is Ms. January – and this would be the February look:
It doesn’t get much better than puppies in the snow, right?
