Cold, white and peaceful places in the northwestern United States

In the cold regions of the world, winter is by definition white and peaceful. I had the chance to see and photograph some beautiful winter landscapes last year. Not too many would adventure to cross the northwestern United States during the cold season. However, those who do it even for short distances, will tell about how beautiful it is. Last year it was especially cold with a lot of snow, but if you take it easy, it’s not too bad. As a restless traveler, my husband took me through Montana, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Don’t ask me why. He always comes up with the best reasons to convince me, and I believe him ๐Ÿ™‚ Fact is that I wouldn’t have seen all those wonderful places otherwise… Here are some of my favorite photos from that trip. * Click on the images for a better view!

The cold, white and peaceful Idaho:

I have some more, but it looks like I only uploaded one to my gallery…

Winter scene in Spencer, a small village in Idaho is one of my favorite winter photos.

The cold, white and peaceful Washington:

I was mostly impressed by the Palouse area in Washington. For those who don’t know, Palouse is a beautiful pastoral area of fertile rolling hills and prairies. You can see it in southeastern Washington, part of Idaho, northwestern side of Montana and even in northeastern Oregon. We drove over these hills covered with snow this time of the year. Here are some of the photos I got. * I still have to upload many.

    • Thank you Tina! It was the first time in my live I’ve seen and even photographed wild horses. They were quite far, but I like the way they were crossing in a row that white hill ๐Ÿ™‚
