|Looking onto Pinchot Lake|
Today’s photo shows a local stream that’s starting to freeze over. The lake beyond is already frozen, and near the mouth of the stream, where I took this photo, the slow-moving stream has reached the point where its flow is stopped by freezing temperatures. It was snowing as I took the photo, as well as fairly early in the morning. Gray and white is the color scheme of the day.
At the cabin the fresh and powdery snow tells the tale of who visited overnight. A deer walked down the center of my driveway, walked right up to my front steps and continued past and up the mountain. A rabbit moved down the lane, not stopping as it hopped down the hill. Baby Dog gallops past me, racing around like crazy. The icy conditions have shortened our morning walks, or at least slowed them, the past few days. I don’t think she likes that, but she has better balance on her four legs than I have on my two. We go at my pace, not hers.
