It was snowing heavily this morning so we decided to take a walk and enjoy it. It was kinda cool being the first one's out.
Leaving the warmth and comfort of our cozy home.
No gourd vines yet!
I think it was about 20 degrees and windy while we walked. Here the wind was coming right off the water, and it was COLD.
I wish I'd done a better job of focusing this. The heavy snow was turning the creek to slush, and the way it had folded in on itself was beautiful, resembling a white rose.
You may remember from a previous post on this blog the graffiti of H. Eron. This is just about the exact spot where he left his mark. Looks like he is at it again!
When Linda and I were on our honeymoon in Alaska, we spent a day hiking Denali National Park. When we first saw dall sheep about a mile away, we immediately took pictures with great excitement. We kept taking new pictures as we got closer... and closer... and closer. Pretty soon we were standing almost next to them, withouth about a hundred picture of dall sheelp just laying there. That's sort of what this was like. I just kept taking a new picture every few step just to see how close I could get.
I felt bad making him fly as he clearly did not want to expend the energy and didn't go far. We head away from the creek into the woods so as not to disturb him further.
Here we are arriving home, cold but happy!
Well, looks like I should've loaded these pictures in the opposite order. This was supposed to be the last picture. Oh well!
And it turned out to be a pretty good one-- a coastal low the pulled moisture off the ocean and cold air from the north which is what I think produces the heaviest snows in this area. And just when we were ready for spring!
