Beyond the Bog

There, beyond the crystal-like barrier, lies another reality.  A place of pine forests and broad leaf trees.  A place where one can walk on solid ground without fear of slipping silently in to the dark water.  Make it to the trees, there lies safety along the October Road.

Lost in a Frozen Woodland

Cold, so very cold.  Not the kind of day anyone should venture out without proper preparation.  It goes beyond being uncomfortable, it’s not just that you can harm your body, it’s the kind of cold that can kill the unprepared.  Take it seriously.

Day Seven

Woodland Creatures!  Strange things are lumbering (lumber and trees go together) through the forest.  If you move about silently, you may just see one.

Things In The Forest

Strange beings are hiding among the innocent trees, but you have to change your angle of view to find them.  One has to wonder what else might be lurking in the forest.

Time with Trees

After a couple of trips to the big city, it feels good to spend some time away from the hubbub of metropolitan energy and spend a bit of time in the northern woods.

Winter Picnic?

Not exactly picnic weather, but lovely for some XC skiing.
