Happiness Is…..

Hitting the trails again after being forced to take 3 days off due to ridiculously low temps and wind chills.

It was 3 degrees when we went out this morning, but very still and peaceful with light snow falling.  It was a little chilly, but I warmed up pretty fast.  It was great to get back out on the snowshoes again.

This is the dreaded Bull Thistle.  These are the nasty little buggers that I sometimes run into (in the summer) when I’m looking for other things to photograph and not paying attention to where I’m going.  When I saw this one all dried up and covered with snow, all I could think was “not so tough now, are you”.

The long road home.

I was about 1 mile back in the woods when I shot this.

When I first left the house, it was snowing lightly, then stopped for awhile.  When it started up again it was snowing a little harder, and it was so peaceful and still that I could almost hear the snow falling.  Once again I’m trying to convey through pictures the amazing sense of peace and tranquility I felt as I stood out there with the snow whispering around me, and once again, my pictures fall short.

    No falling short; I can sense the quiet snow drifting to the ground.
