A mid winter walk

 We headed out last weekend for a stroll through our property. I figured we would take the long route through the stand of spruce trees. My boys decided heading straight for their wigwam was the best course of action, hard to argue with pride of creation really so it was off to the wigwam.

It had drifted nicely around the yard and through the trees so for the most part we were 2 feet off the ground which gives short people a new perspective.




 


Short dogs too. 


We broke through the crust occasionally, me more than other short and light people. It was a warm beautiful day as much like spring as anywhere else I expect, of course this isn't spring just a warm spell to make skating ponds in the fields.

We tried to follow our path but veered off pretty consistently. I found myself looking down on a spruce I am usually eye to eye with.

A buried treasure was found in the snow. The boys used their found walking sticks as tools to dig it out.


Know what it is yet?




Our path fairy! She marks the trail where our paths diverge or meet whichever way you happen to be walking.

A wonderful walk in the woods.

Today it acted a bit more like the real Alaska and snowed again, thankfully too! It was getting pretty dirty and dusty out there. I guess that's what you get when your valley was built by 2 glaciers and is flanked by their respective rivers and riverbeds. Silt, everywhere, which is ok because even IF you dust it still looks dusty so if you DON'T happen to dust well no one will ever know.

Don't forget to check my previous post to see my new awards and who I passed them on too.

Peace and Love,

  1. Oooo I like the path fairy! She's cool.

    I'm with you on needing new snow to cover up the grunge. Of course I'd also be cool right now with real spring and sun and buds and flowers and mud just disappearing altogether :)
