Sitting behind my desk and behind my computer, I already miss being outside in nature, and experiencing this beauty. The virgin snow covers all imperfections and even the litter you sometimes find in these far flung places. The innocence of this landscape under a white blanket is amazing to me. It is so peaceful and fun. This was also evidenced yesterday by this little winter wren which was darting from trunk to trunk over the ice, pecking the bark for bugs and other food items. The diminutive bird did not care about us and our dogs. It came close to us and for a while just stood there on the ice and watched us. I generally find them very secretive, but this little guy had no worry in the world and was having fun on the ice. A fun peaceful place to spend an afternoon.
