Pictures of Snow

It is time for some pictures of the snow!

I got out to the Norland yesterday with Duce and Tiki.  We hiked up one of my favorite springtime trails (which I missed this spring because I don't live out there anymore.)  Although yesterday was quite wintery, it was still as magical as always.

The first snow-laden tree I saw on Woodland Road

Icicles on the branches
Who's that in the upper right?  Brockway!

The snow resting on the needles was just so... perfect

LOTS of snow-laden trees.  Can you see the trail?

Who's hiding under all that snow?...

A little fir tree!

Wow.  Thanks for being amused with me.  If you weren't, you should know it doesn't really get much better.  

On that note, I have to say thank you.  Thank you for clicking on this page now and then.  Thank you for enjoying my pictures and videos (okay that's the easy part).  Thank you for reading my words because heaven knows most people don't read much anymore!  Thank you for understanding that I am trying to share this magical place with you.  It's the least I can do for mankind.

And guess what.  Today is the last day of hunting season!  I am going to celebrate tomorrow with a climb up the mountain.  I don't even care which mountain; these buns are going UP!


  1. Thank you for sharing! You'll never know how much I appreciate your site.

  2. Regarding the sidebar of a "Resident's Point of View", only 7 States have a lower population density than the U.P.; Idaho, New Mexico, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Alaska.

    And I venture an estimate that only 4 of those have a lower population density if you only count forested land.

  3. Hey Don, thanks for the research and info on the sidebar. I've been through all of those states (except Alaska for now), and I remember going miles and miles without seeing signs of life. A freeing yet eerie feeling.

  4. Amanda - I love your site. I love the UP and dream to live UP someday. :)

  5. Keep the updates going, Amanda! Love it!

  6. I love your adventures and use them to inspire me to get out there sometimes when I don't feel like it. I don't live in such a beautiful place, but, there is always beauty when we are willing to look for it - and I do! Thank you! Thank you! and, Thank you!!

  7. Thanks for your sweet words, everyone! Glad you enjoy!
