Shoes of snow

Here are some photos from my snow trek through the tundra last weekend. I had such a good time just enjoying the solitary path and a brief snow shower. I did see a few fellow trekkers out there, as well as some skiers and people riding in a weird snow wagon.

What you see behind me in the picture where I am basically standing en attitude is a frozen lake. In the spring, swans come to the lake. Now, people can pay and drive on the frozen lake. Why, you might inquire. Well, they are having fun drifting. Ask a young male in your life for a fuller definition if you are curious. To be honest, it did look kind of fun out there!

At one point in my trek, I saw a fox speeding through the woods. Couldn’t get a picture of him, though. He was probably sprinting because his paws were getting frostbitten!

The snow angel is sooo cool, as is the birdhouse(?) and the approaching storm.

I also like your silouette(sp?) with the 2 tracks on what looks like a vast plain.
