Beautiful colored sky, but I'm most thrilled by the mention of Uncle Wiggily, a childhood favorite of mine.

Hi Eco.... I love visiting your blog to see that beautiful area out there in Montana. Glad you can get back out in the snow and get some exercise.. I'm like you --in that I enjoy being outside in winter. It's so invigorating!!!

Your sky ---and those colors---is fabulous.
