Gallery: Winter Wonderland

The first major winter storm of the season slammed the Cascades this week with a several feet of snow in many spots. While we still got some fall left, it definitely has got me thinking about winter. The snow and the cold, it's a love hate relationship for me, but man is winter a beautiful time of year especially in the mountains. In honor of winter's first appearance here is a gallery of images I've taken over the years of some of my favorite winter scenes.
