Twelve (or Ten?) Months of LFD (2017)

I'm doing the year-end meme wherein I compile the first sentence of the first post of every month. Meme rules are as follows, as per DrugMonkey (2014):
Post the link and first sentence from the first blog entry for each month of the past year.
I also add the first photo from the same first post. Previous takes on this Twelve Month meme at LFD were posted for 2008, 2009, 20102012, 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Aaand...here's the year 2017 for LFD:

January:
It's been icy cold in the far northlands, with temperatures hovering not too far above zero for several days.

February:
It was a late fall day, and I stopped along Route 447 to see if I could get close to some of the brilliantly colored trees along the Truckee River a few miles north of Wadsworth.

March:
I planned to have this descriptive section as part of the last post—the one about being packed and ready to leave town—but this "little bit" grew and grew, and eventually it had to find its own home.

April:
I was looking back through some photos and realized I had some of the Roan Cliffs from the spring of 2006.

May:
What is this?!!1?1!?
It all started when I was trying to find out what rock formations and rock types I was seeing while making the long trip to work and back out near Elko.

June:
I'm moving slowly on this mini-series about the Humboldt River while working essentially 12-hour days and while (hopefully) recovering from some long-lasting bug I caught on the road or out in Elko more than two months ago.

July:
Returning once again to my spring mini-series about all the rivers and lakes that are at higher levels than I've seen in quite awhile (most recent post), I decided this time to show a few pics of the Truckee River, which I drive by quite frequently.

August: Nothing.

September:
It's been a busy summer, such that I really haven't had time to get much blogging done—and I had so many good posts planned!

October:
This is a classic road song with "road" right there in the title, courtesy once again of MOH.

November: Nada.

December: (links to this post).
I'm doing the year-end meme wherein I compile the first sentence of the first post of every month.
