Flu, frogs, snow, & warm weather. Crazy February recap!

Another month has passed!  This month I had the flu, which took me out of commission for over a week.  Four days of laying around, unable to do anything.  Then an additional week and a half trying to fully recover my strength and appetite.  I cannot tell you how happy I am that is over.  When…

WPC – Magic

For those of us heading into winter, this may not seem so magical.  However, last year while hiking after a heavy snow, the forest had transformed into a magical place.  All of the branches were heavy with snow & bent in toward the trail.  Despite the cold, I could not help but stop & take…

The Changing Seasons – January 2016
