And yet another snowfall in South Dakota...

Paul sent me some more pics from South Dakota this past weekend. It was snowing on Sunday, so he went out for a drive and took some pictures. I know a lot of people across the country have had it up to their eyeballs with snow, but since I was sweating buckets working on my yard on Saturday, I could appreciate some photos of the white stuff. I thought he did a pretty good job and I love the "blueness" in all the shots.

See that profile in the middle of the picture? That's George from Mt. Rushmore. It's a side shot that most people don't know about as you drive around the backside of the mountain.

These lake shots are of either Lake Sheridan or Lake Pactola. It's hard for me to tell because of the vagueness of the photos...which I think is a cool effect.

You can actually see some of the snowflakes in some of these.




I miss the beauty of it, but I don't miss praying my Ford Escort would get up the hill.

This is one of my favorites...

This one just makes me feel cold looking at it.

I don't think we have to worry about not having a lifeguard here...

And here's some history if anyone is interested.

Thanks for another diversion from Texas, Paul.

Beautiful photos, Deb! ( And Paul)

We 'Hillers' look forward to days like this....the world seems to come to a stop for our private showing. Deb "IS" a Hiller, just like the rest of us. When she left it was The Black Hills' loss, and Texas' gain. We try to keep her close with pictures.

Thanks, Ann...well, I should say Paul thanks you!

Awww...thanks, Paul. It's one of the most beautiful areas I've had the pleasure to live in. I'll always have that South Dakota connection...and the memories. (Although I could live without the spider memories.) :-/

Beautiful winter scenes Deb! It's hard to imagine when it's 90 plus degrees down here in the Southwest!
