First big winter storm of the season, snow, 0 degrees, a perfect day to snowshow out the river and see what's going on.
A look back at the house just before Roxanne (dawg) and I drop into the overflow river channel to work our way out to the river.
The creekbed becomes a perfect snowshoe trail in the winter..
Solitude and the shsss-ssssh-sssh of the slushy, freezing river greet us.
This channel off the main river freezes solid for an amazing ice rink. MIght get to skate early this year!
Roxanne explores near the banks of the ice-chunked river.
The bench along the river - it helps so friends don't get lost when flyfishing! And now for the missed photos - a young river otter along the bank and the trumpeter swans that flew overhead at just about the same time.Â Too busy staring in awe to take a photo!
The treestand. Great views downriver from up there!
And back to the house via the nature trail. 1 hour out at the river, never saw a human being. Wondrous.
