A winter hike

Two pairs of socks, two caps, two pairs of gloves, hiking poles, a thick wool sweater, a cotton turtleneck and a really good pair of Merrells. That’s what it took to get me outdoors today for a several miles’ hike. And, it was glorious.

Saw five deer, several squirrels, one gorgeous Blue Jay and maybe 20 geese swimming in the watery part of an otherwise frozen river.

Delighted to be outdoors on this beautiful morning.

What I see when I walk

Something about those snarly trees made me want to take pictures of them.

When the snow flies

Looking so forward to cold, snowy days and snuggling in with books, tea, warm jammies and slippers. Living in an area that gives full measure to all four seasons is a delight.

Early morning hike

The Maumee River is a lovely, lovely place to welcome the sun as it rises, slowly, over mist and fog and trees and rocks and water.

You’ve only to listen.
