weekend tromp

The snow is thinish on the ground right now. Not enough to need snowshoes by a long shot, but enough still for a good snow tromp this weekend. Checking on the fairy house and looking for tracks and pounding on the ice with sticks to see if it will crack. We had a thaw one day last week, enough that the creek was almost a river, but it's back to frozen again, all icicles and little caves with water bubbling under it. I'm ready for a good heavy snowfall, and a long snowshoe hike. But this was just the thing for this weekend. A good walk and then back to the fire to warm up.
