The boys and I went on a hike at one of our favorite spots today. The weather was very decent! Best it has been in a few weeks, temp-wise. It was about 35 degrees. We were curious to see what our favorite places looked like under the snow and ice. We also went to the bird blind at WWSP and saw lots of nuthatches, black capped chickadees, woodpeckers, and cardinals.

|I love the snow running up or resting on these fallen trees.|
I'm hoping this is the first winter I don't get the winter blues! Cliff and I started walking when the weather is decent enough out. Yay!
