Killing Time, Waiting for Snow

No changes in our local weather in the last week. The Pacific Northwest is still sitting under a persistent high pressure ridge, and the resulting inversion (and fog) in the Rogue Valley has us longing for weather-- any weather-- to come and sweep it out. To escape the fog here in the valley, I went for a hike in the nearby Applegate Valley and snapped a few pictures of the Applegate Lake area with my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 camera (review to follow in the coming weeks). Enjoy the photos, and pray for snow.
