I love the snow!

We have had a very snowy winter so far!  I love the snow.  I always look forward to long explorations in the woods with the snow settling down around me.  There exists something almost magical about the sound absorbing qualities of snow and the peace that usually comes with the white of winter.  Late at night all that can be heard is the crunching of snow beneath your feet as you walk and look at the stars or ponder the way the light refracts off the falling snowflakes.  I have yet to don my fur suit this year but soon I will be out sneaking among the trees and brush tracking animals and whatever else catches my attention. I have been catching up on studying out of some field guides and look forward to reacquainting myself with the plants, wildlife and trees of this area.  

A CHALLENGE TO ALL; Take a walk at night during the snowy months! Explore a new area following the tracks of animals and see where they lead you and what they have to teach. Nature brings clarity to all aspects of the participant's life.  Will you do that?
