So here's the last of the photos from the Yurt adventure:
|A wee bit of sunshine struggling to get|
through the grey clouds. Mmmmmuch
colder today - down to -18c!
|Where all had been open water yesterday|
is now covered with a thin veneer of ice
and snow - would NOT want to fall into
the river or the lake today!
|We took a different trail but then drove|
down the road a ways so we could go to
the lake again - lots of wave action again
today - I don't know HOW cold it was with
the wind chill.
No sand today - just lots of ice formations!
|Because of the size of the waves and the |
frigid temperatures everything
within 20 - 30 feet of the shoreline was
now coated with ice!
|Just hanging around trying to stay warm!|
|Lumpy ice is nice!|
|I felt sorry for the long grasses -|
they were frozen solid!
|Won't be long now til the river is all|
covered with ice.
|A very different shoreline|
than yesterday! Everything
is frozen solid.
|As we were walking back to the car we|
came across a family feeding the chickadees!
So I joined in and Michael snapped a few
pictures. I tried it without my mitts but
my hand froze within seconds.
|But the birds didn't mind my mitts.|
So was I glad that Michael dragged my
butt out for a hike - YES!!
Just an example of the pros and cons
of living with a life coach - ya just
can't get away with being a grumpus!
|Look - two chickadees!|
Gotta go, going to finally finish watching
Don't ya just love Vince Vaughn?
Ya sure wouldn't catch him on a
100 mile hike!!
