Just a Couple Winter Scenes

The crazy amounts of snow that we were receiving here in North Idaho has taken a break, at least for the time. The sun has been shining frequently providing some picturesque scenes. At least a couple times a week I drive a stretch of US HWY 2 from Sandpoint, ID to the Washington border for my job. It's about a 30 mile trek, but with the Pend Oreille River on the south side and the southern edge of the Selkirk Mtns to the north, I can't complain about the scenery. Wednesday was a gorgeous sunny day in the upper twenties. I couldn't resist pulling over at mm 11 and having a gander.
