The Upside of Winter in the North Country!







well, there's yet another snow storm coming tonight, tomorrow, tomorrow night, etc. SIGH.





last week i did play hooky and go snowshoeing with my girlfriends. we went in the backwoods of Indian Lake, NY and we did a lovely 6 mile roundtrip trek to a frozen pond, John's Pond.


it was absolutely gorgeous in the woods... peaceful, pretty, lots of snow, and no sounds except the birds and a bunch of giggling.


i love snow and even i'm getting tired of it... come spring, i will be wishing i was right back on my shoes in the middle of the woods.................................




and then there's Buster who seems to be saying, what's wrong with this weather? IT'S DIVINE!!!!!!! i guess he likes the cold. :)

You are adorable!! Loook at you!! I love this photo and all the snow...it's true when it's gone you'll miss it and when the buds on the trees are grown into leaves you'll miss them - we always miss the seasons but then they come and we are like - enough snow! Hahaha...I loove that you had this day with your girlfriends = that's awesome fun

Great pictures, though they make me homesick! I grew up in New England, and now live in Southern California. Haven't seen snow in a few years. I miss the clean air and the crunch under my boots. Sigh...
