Tripping around the region

This is an archive photo 
–from our backyard!

March 3rd

It was a rather less than stellar wildlife trip. It is impossible walking in the forest. I noticed few tracks on the fields, except for the foxes who trip the light fantastic on the top of the snow.
Terrible walking. What the heck - lets go for a drive!
I spotted a few turkeys sitting in a forest in the sun, but didn't get a drive-by photo.
 It's a good day to hunker down with your friends.

A beautiful, sunny day!
Whoops. Dead end! "Not maintained by the county!"

"Playfairville!"  The Mississippi River, Ontario! Hubby sat in the car, whilst I leapt out to photograph the dark, dark blues and blacks of the river!

Hello, pretty snowy scenes. I like the turkeys and the view of the river. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week!

So cold, and yet so beautiful! I appreciate seeing this world, so different from my own. One of the joys of blogging is certainly learning what it would be like if you were "somewhere else instead".

There is something enchanting about the play of sunlight on snow - and water for that matter! Great shots Jenn... YAM xx

Maybe low on critters, but some beautiful countryside. We got just a dusting of snow on top of Goat Island a week ago. That the second time this season, pretty meager. We did take the quads up to the snow and I ate my traditional pop and snow snowcone. Fun! - Margy

Still lots of snow, and love the contrast with the dark water, Mr. J in the car, sensible man!!! Stay warm.

Great to see open water on the Mississippi. Feel like I've just been a passenger on your scenic drive. Thanks for sharing.

I like how our local Mississippi is looking!

Snow is usually deepest at this time of year and of course we sink right to the bottom.

Lovely. It looks like spring might just arrive.

I still can't get over your wild turkeys just wandering around your backyard. Wow! Just looking at your photos made me feel cooler.

Coincidentally, I have scheduled some photos to be posted tomorrow that my daughter texted me from Chicago. She knew I would want to blog about it. :-)
