Light on the Darkest Day

As the darkest day settles upon us, we look forward to the light ahead, shinning a little bit more with each passing day. We hope you can find the beauty in nature on this day and if not, Jill has put together a collection of photos that capture the light. Happy Solstice everyone!

The buffalo, strong and tenacious, come into view through a winter whiteout. 

Overnight guests (grandkids) enjoy the cozy spot - warmed by the fire and the sun.

Cheers to brighter, warmer days ahead!
