Afternoon Stroll

November_walk_1

A stroll up the trail on a November afternoon. Will it be warm will it be cold, sunny or cloudy? Probably all of the above.

The trail was covered with a light layer of snow yet the creek flowed freely.

Mountain Ash berries glowing a brilliant orange seem to scream “hey birds…what are you waiting for.”

November_walk_3

Temperatures warmed along the way as icicles glued to moss began to thaw.

…and what started a cloudy day become much less so on a slow and quiet afternoon stroll.
