Solstice Approaches

It's day six of our so-called "Arctic Blast" which has excited the local news stations and children who received a week off from school. The weather has, as usual, frustrated transplants who expect better snow clearing from the local government.

Now that the Solstice is approaching, I have been trying to relax a bit more, work a bit less, and enjoy making ornaments. Here are a few more:

A long-tailed weasel and red-faced warbler

A Pacific lamprey

A banded rock-rattlesnake

Now that the tree is nearly full, I need to start making gifts for friends and family.

Thanks for the great pics of handcrafted ornaments on this and the earlier post--they are awesome!

I'm looking forward to bonfires & feasting & headlamp skiing at The Moulton (north of Butte) Soltice Celebration come Saturday night--despite dire predictions of -30 deg F weather.
