Winter came for a visit.
|..in a big way.|
Saturday we didn't have a single flake - the trails were actually quite dull-looking, with all the leaves down. It was overcast and dreary, so everything was cast in browns and greys.
|It wasn't the most inspiring landscape, but still better than not being in the woods.|
|I even found a tiny stretch of singletrack!|
|I was seriously outnumbered by waterfowl.|
|There's nothing quite like the silence of a heavy snowfall|
|I had wondered if a groomed, crushed gravel trail would have enough coverage for my purposes, but even with some slushy bits it was fine.|
|No headlamp required - it's just the best.|
|I didn't, however, stop to sit on any benches - I don't think anyone will be using this one for awhile!|
|I got to meet some fun new neighbors, though!|
|I never even managed to get a cross-country ski in!|
It certainly was fun while it lasted, though, and I hope we'll see more snowy days this winter. If it's going to be chilly, you might as well be able to enjoy the best that winter has to offer!
|I always dream of a white Christmas!|
