Over the past month, the western SoDak prairies have received the most snow of the season. It was finally deep enough for me to head out to Glorious Splendor* on snowshoes and the next day, x-country ski.
The wind was tolerable as it blew snow across the landscape, caught by bits of grasses that created drifts and patterns.
*Glorious Splendor is the the hill on which I was standing as I took these photos. It’s a short trek from my house. This spectacular view of the prairie declares the beauty of God’s creation.
