Crisp and Cold

This morning’s adventure took me out to Long Lake.  Standing on the edge of an entirely frozen solid lake, I could feel the crisp and cold air brushing against my face.  Did I stay there for long on a very gray morning with the threat of more bad weather in the forecast?  What do you think?

A Last Look

As lethargic as the cold can make me feel at times, here is what I hope is a last look at winter reflections.

Fresh snow and sunshine!

Is there any other reason necessary for a fun, snowy walk along the trail?

Maybe, add a bit of color?

Left Behind in the Snow

As I walked along the trail, I tried to picture who had gone before me by the footprints left behind in the snow.
