I arrived in Pinedale yesterday afternoon for a parish visitation this weekend. Today, after 7:00am Mass, I had the great pleasure of enjoying the company of Fr. Lucas and six other men from the area. We had a great time snowmobiling and ice fishing on Boulder Lake.

After a brutal winter day and drive here yesterday, putting up with ground blizzards from blowing snow and wind gusts of up to 40 – 60 mph, today was clear and calm.  It was around zero early this morning, but once we were properly bundled up for the day, it was quite comfortable.  It was a great way to spend a day off.  Tommorrow, I will begin meeting with various groups and celebrating the weekend Masses at both here and in Big Piney.  It is a beautiful part of God’s creation!  Enjoy the pics.
