I love it a lot like I love the slow fall of crystal reflections through the forest cannopy on a cold snowy day

If you look carefully you can see the occasional snowflake falling ;-)

My connection is really slow. Out here on the edge of nowhere it's hard to upload more than a few seconds of video. I'm not sure I can loop

Two hours later and this 30 second video wasn't able to load. Thought I'd try it again ;-)

I am fast falling for the late night crowd. Apparently my base is Woodsy Night Owl ;-)

I'll take the animal paths over trails any day. But I'd first recommend getting out of your cars & stepping into the forest any way you can

My hike today was little more than a slog across a few animal paths interrupted by one after another tree falls.

Walking on snow laden grass is a lot like walking on ice. Traipsing through this forest was quite the chore. I'm beat, but it was beautiful

I wish I could have captured the depth in this photo. It looks kinda "flat", unfortunately.

OK the various shades of red on some pines are evidence of stages of beetle kill. This forest does NOT show an unusual infection rate.

They are dead. Beetle kill trees go through color stages ranging from pastel green through every red. Beautiful and sad all at once

Yes I meant "ali gators" ;-) OK so that one was all me. Gaiters is apparently what I meant.

Gators, thats what I need, I sacrificed my last clean & dry jeans and discovered my waterproof boots aren't actually waterproof on this shot

They do but they do so slowly and for different reasons.

Can't thank everyone enough for helping out with the winter supplies. The cold and snow arrived early this year

All the forest critters were snug in their beds. The forest colors on the other hand.
