Cue the birds-
And morning has broken and Lola did not become totally covered by the snow.... this children, is a good thing.
|This is actually an afternoon pic, but who's to know??|
Meanwhile, the Mad-Art Teacher is attempting to get out to her horse and has to shovel Mt Everest out of the way to get to the path that she can again teeter around on and fall up to her knees at least 2 times before she gets to the barn. By the way, you forgot to remind me to take the shovel out this morning and it was quite the trek to get there. But you know me I am tenacious!
|Shoveled and target is in sight.|
Since I have been sitting around for the past 3 days, voiceless, I decided that enough was enough and I had to go for a walk. A snowshoe session was in order to shake loose the cobwebs and rev up the day.
|A lovely day with scattered clouds and sunshine|
|this is one of those things that looks really cool in person and doesn't quite translate in photo form|
|Entrance to the woods road|
|I'm sort of obsessed with the shadows on the snow on the trail|
|Curves in the path is quite enticing- I always want to go around that next turn.|
|This was just beautiful framed by the trees and grasses|
|This is where the deer decided to stop using the former sled and snowshoe path as a thoroughfare and off I ventured. |
|LOVE these shadows|
|Webs of snow|
|The cabin shrouded in snow, no recent tracks or signs of life yet!|
|This spot is my favorite snow photography location.|
Kinda cool how you can see the snowshoe tracks and the poles marks!!
It was one of those "If you can't beat them, join them" sort of days. It snowed, so go snowshoeing. Or skiing or maybe snowmobiling, but I like the quieter sorts of sports.
And as the forecast calls for some wicked cold coming our way, we are going to have to dig deep to find ways to stay upbeat and joyful as we face some more temps that are well below normal- again- still- yet.
But we Northern Wisconsin types are a persistent lot and we will find our joy!! Because, you guys, spring IS on it's way!!
