Well we got snow on and off most of today. It started around 11:00 A.M. and continued for about 1 - 2 hours. so I decided it was a good time for a photo op so i left my cave and took some pics in the yard first then ventured out to check the nearby hills.

  These first three were taken in my front yard at about 12:30 this afternoon

 This windmill is on the Chilton Cattle Ranch right here in Diamond Bell. And it is still a working ranch. the Sad story is that it is after all of these years the ranch is up for sale. It has been around for many decades. We can only hope that whoever buys it continues to use it as such.
 These next two photos were taken about 3:00 in the afternoon and as you can see the snow was going away down here in the lower elevations. This view is looking north from Diamond Bell to the Tucson Mountains.
  This is looking up towards the Sierrita Mountains
at the same time. By 5:00 this afternoon the snow began coming done even harder that it had during earlier in the day. We now have snow out in the yard and it is about midnight. Will try to get more pics in the morning. Enjoy.....

  1. I saw lots of snow still on the Black mountain and in the crevas behind me so it must have snowed more here last night too. Nice shots.
