Last rays of light
Brighten the winter sky
Nightfall closes in
It was one of those awesome winter days that I just live for;
Sunshine, blue skies, mild temps, my camera and lots and lots of
snowshoeing. I was out for about 3 hours today, snowshoeing
with my sister-in-law and my dog. It was the kind of
day that makes me feel so alive and so thankful for all the
good things in my life. It was the kind of day that serves to
remind me that though I may not have everything I want,
I most certainly have everything I need.

I like these tiny little trails in the snow.
I wonder how long this old bucket has been
hanging around on this fencepost.
No, it just doesn’t get any better than this.
As I was out snowshoeing in the woods this afternoon
with my dog, I couldn’t help but wonder how I could ever
live without these walks that I treasure so much.
It was so peaceful and still, with no breeze, mild temps
and pure silence. I would walk along for awhile, then every
so often I would stop and stand perfectly still, just absorbing
the peacefulness, then I would continue walking again,
randomly, in whichever direction I chose, only to stop again
and stand still, listening to the silence and the soft call of the
chickadees, talking to each other from the treetops.
It is at times like these that I am reminded, once again,
that I may not have everything I want, but I have everything
Actually, this road is not forgotten at all, it is in the
woods behind our house and I walk there quite
often. For some reason I feel very drawn to this
little road and I’ve photographed it in every season
and in every kind of light. In fact, every time I
walk this way I stop to take a picture.
Well, the cold has let up a bit today. It clouded up this
morning and it’s been snowing lightly all afternoon. we’re
expected to get 2-3 inches. Yesterday, however, was another
story. The morning dawned on -16 F and the temperature
struggled to get to 2 F. It was a great day to go snowshoeing.

Enough about the cold. Let’s go back to Hawaii once more.
This is Waikiki Beach. The hotel on the farthest right
is the Resortquest, where we stayed. That’s Diamondhead
Crater in the background.

We woke up this morning to -16 F. The high temperature
for the day was zero. I took a walk in the woods with my
dog at ten in the morning and it was -10 F. I never got
cold at all. By 6:00 p.m. it was already back down to -9 F.
OK, enough of that. Back to Hawaii.
