A Weekend Romp In The Snow: Snowshoeing

With nearly 3 feet of snow on the ground in the last 10 days, it was finally time to dig out the snowshoes and to take a hike through the woods. And that is just what we did this weekend. The weather was crisp, the skies clear, and the sun was shining. What a great way to spend the morning.

A Morning Well Spent

The trail was quiet the entire time we were outside. We didn’t come across another person; no dogs or deers either. Just a few birds chirping in the trees and water babbling through open spots in the brook.

Snowshoeing on a winter morning….priceless.

First Snow


We had our first measureable snow fall today.  I love the first snow fall of the season.  I love the way the snow sticks to the trees and plants, covering them in a protective blanket, embracing nature in the wrap of winter. 

There is something peaceful about the first snow fall.  It is as if winter calls us to draw inward, to reflect on the past year and to plan for the new year. 


It also means my skis start to get restless as they await their chance to hit fresh snow and cruise down the slopes.  Yea!
