Forest bathing

I took a walk prior to our big rainfall.
A nice piece of fungus on a tree on the island in the wetland. The island looks VERY wet, with a lot of deep snow around it.

This is the island in the wetland.

Back on the mainland...

I love this little cave. I once found a dead porcupine here. Grouse used it as a cave, too.

The trees grow right up through the rock.

The wetland is, indeed, wet. We're in for a big melt.

We share the forest, apparently with a billion zillion springtails, AKA snow fleas.

Then there are the raccoons, the skunks, and the rabbits.

This was a chunk of raccoon fur. Someone had a fight!

There was a big front rolling in, I wanted to get my walk in before that!

Another set of woodpecker holes.

You can see the moss growing where the sun has warmed it.

Is it warming up Jenn? We are getting mornings with the darkness staying longer, nights drawing in, and in Hamner Springs, so COLD!!! Off further south today, should manage to arrive at the farm safely.XXX to you both.

We had a bit of snow last night but the sun this morning is taking quick care of it. Need to go out shopping but am waiting for the roads to warm up and melt the ice. - Margy

Lots of stories are written in the snow.

I haven’t seen snow fleas in years.
