Another day, another walk with the dogs. Most days I walk or snowshoe with them to the back of our property. I think it's a couple of kilometres round trip.
Most of our snow melted in the New Year's thaw, but it is starting to accumulate again. Since I love snow in winter, not to mention snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, I am pleased. We still haven't had a honking big winter storm. Not like, say, December 2007 (and the winter of 2008!) when we were drowning in snow.
I want a big snow storm!! But back to Thursday's walk...
The snow-coated ice formations along the creek were pretty:
And Sophie and Tristan, as always, were happy to be outside running, running, running!
That's the farm in the centre! I was at the entrance to our woodlot on the western side of our property. In summer I can't even walk down there because the path is so overgrown, but in winter it's no problem.
I found a tree with weird fluorescent orange lichen (or fungus; I'm not good with lichen/fungus identification!) growing on it.
Odd to see something so brightly coloured in the wood in the middle of winter!
Running, running, running...
Not sure what Sophie was gazing at, but something caught her attention.
The subdued shades of winter, and the sun that is still sinking early in the afternoon. But every day gets a little longer and a little brighter.
Enjoy the weekend.
