My Kind of Winter Walk

It got into the upper 50’s last week.  Just a few days before we had been hovering around 0, so the upper 50’s was truly a heat wave!  We took advantage of the warmth and headed out for a wonderful wintery walk.  I say wintery because there were still icy signs all over the place.  We had a blast exploring!

By far, the neatest find was this spring that continued to flow underneath a sheet of melting ice.

I SO wish this picture showed the beauty of the ice crystals and the way the ice was revealing the leaves bit by bit.

We couldn’t agree on who might have made these tracks, but it was obvious a small critter had walked the creek bed before us!

Little did I know only a few days after the pictures above were taken, we’d be in for quite a winter reminder again.  Here are some pictures from the last couple of days.  The children, of course, loved every minute outside.  I, however,  enjoyed taking pictures from the front and back porches!

Don’t waste a minute of winter nature study!


  1. I love your photos! That is so neat about the creek flowing underneath the ice.

    Have you noticed how quiet blogworld is lately? It’s like you can hear crickets it’s so quiet.

    Love Ya, Melissa

  2. Hey Girlfriend! I’ve been very sketchy in my blogging lately, but I’m going to try at least once a week. Seems the Lord is leading me to use my time elsewhere, but I’m not ready to give it up yet! Hope you didn’t lose power in the ice storm – we did for one looong day. Take care!

  3. Oh WOW, what great pics!

    We can only live vicariously through others when it comes to snow and ice related nature walks… it just doesn’t get that cold here in Houston.
