The Snow Covered Path

 

The day after our first snowstorm of the season was bright and sunny - a perfect day for a walk in the snow with Cooper.

We headed down the snow covered path, with only a few footprints to guide our way. The sky was so pretty and blue against the back drop of the bright, white snow.

The snow was soft and fluffy beneath our feet as we followed the path through the woods. It was quiet and calm; the only sound was my breath and the snow crunching beneath my boots.

Just off the path, through the woods, you can see a frozen pond. Once it is solid, there will be ice skaters and hockey players, all winter long.

Further ahead, just over a bridge, this stream, still unfrozen, trickles serenely through the fallen trees.

A snowy path, a sunny day and my walking buddy - my favorite things in the winter months.

Have a wonderful weekend :-)

  29. Made me miss our Tyler - she used to love making doggy snow angels rolling around in the snow. She also used to crack me up because she was trained to wipe her feet when she came in the house. She would dutifully wipe all of her paws on the mat and wait for someone with a towel to come dry off the rest of her if she had snow on her. :) I also miss those days of skating out in the woods wherever we could find a good patch of ice when we were kids. Fun times! Glad you have a great walking buddy to enjoy the scenery with. [#TALU]

  32. ahhhhhhhh - beautiful. All we get in NC is mostly just rainy cold days. It has drizzled here for 4 straight days and our yard and pasture is one big mud puddle. So, yes, I am severely jealous right now. (talu)

  37. That's another one of my favourite things about winter, walking through a fresh snowfall, so calming and peaceful! Great shots, it certainly could have been from around here! ...and yes, the sky always looks so blue when there is touch of sun after a snowfall, it is stunning! Thanks for joining in the last week of No Winter Whining, it has been a pleasure! Cheers~

  39. I need a walking buddy. That would make winter more pleasurable--or maybe more frustrating? ;-)
