In our lead photo, Chris Gotschalk shows us the sunny Swan Crest above the foggy Flathead Valley while . . .
. . . Debra Schweitzer skied a thin clear air layer between valley fog and low clouds!
Keith Hammer could see the promise of blue sky as he skied up through a chilly basin and . . .
. . . was rewarded with warmer air and sunshine above!
Pat Jaquith saw a flock of Bohemian waxwings . . .
. . . Lynn Smith saw a couple Swans and . . .
. . . Ruth Quist saw a Pygmy owl, while . . .
. . . Pam Willison saw a Mourning dove and . . .
. . . a Pileated woodpecker eating snow off the top of a tree shortened by a two-legged beaver!
Skip Via found a couple of Pileated woodpeckers stripping bark from Ponderosa trees in his nieghborhood to get at some type of tasty little critters underneath!
In our parting shot, Keith Hammer managed a photo of the full moon through thin clouds and the forest canopy!
