My World a Few Tuesdays Ago



                                                                                   Photos by Richard Schear


When Lindy isn't watching deer or rabbits, she likes to watch youngsters sliding down the hills in the nearby coulees. This coulee has steps built into the side, so sledders and tobogganers can get back up reasonably easily. Lindy would have liked a sled for Christmas! After these pictures were taken, the snow in our area got very deep, but now it is melting, and the water is getting deep instead.

Great shots. Looks like a great hill for sledding.

Lesley said...

ah yes, the steps up the side are an excellent idea!!

Great shots! Reminds me of when my kids were growing up in Montana and we did a lot of this sort of thing -- along with our dogs! Fun look at your world, Kay! Hope your week is off to a great start! Stay warm!

I bet the steps are really appreciated for those long climbs back up. I bet Lindy could get up them in just a few bounds. - Margy

Now that is my idea of an ideal sledding hill.

That looks like great fun! We have way too much snow for any good tobogganing at the moment though.

Lindy is gorgeous!

Beautiful winter shots in the snow. I love them.

This scene is no longer part of My World, but I did a LOT of sledding and skiing when I was a kid growing up in Finland. We never had STAIRS to get us back to the top, though... brilliant. Even shot from behind her, Lindy looks like she wants a go at it!

Thanks for visiting me, and thanks for kind words. Love your dog too, it is nice for a Norwegian to see a Golden Golden Retriever, In Norway, mine is amongst the dark ones, because the whole breed has turned white...
Have a lovely winterday. Greetings from Norway.

What fun! Looks like a great hill for tube sledding. Poor Lindy, she wantsa sled too.

Cezar and Léia said...

Hey Lindy, I think it's really a funny day there!
I would love to join the kids and try this "game"as well!
Cool!
Léia :)

Great series of pics! Brings back lots of memories for me. Lindy certainly has that 'stance' that says, "Am I next?".

Lindy has that very alert look that says she's raring to go:-)

Leslie said...

Looks like FUN!

That looks FUN!

Thank goodness for stairs and sleds. This looks like a nicely sloping hill that would be fun to slide down. Great winter sport for kids and kids at heart who are looking for exercise. :)

When I was a child and also a young mother I loved snow !
But now I think about broken hips and legs, lol !

Indrani said...

Fun winter sport, these pics tempt me to slide there.

Kay said...

Oh WOW! My kids would so LOVE that hill!

Be careful of that deep water!

Martha said...

I have never seen a sledding hill with steps. Very, very cool!

Being from California, I feel cold just looking at these pictures. Snow is beautiful, but sooo cold. Looks like everyone is having a great time, though, in spite of the cold. Smart.
