such a nice snowshoe walk
I had a lovely snowshoe hike today through the woods. A lot of it was on trail, but some of it was off-trail. The snow was a bit sunken and crusty, but it still clung to the branches of the trees. There's something striking about the dark tree trunks against the brilliant white of snow, and then all those scratchy branches.... But there were also evergreen trees, with their still fresh needles, even in the deep of winter. It's easy to see how they would become a symbol of so many enduring things. So, yes, a lovely walk. Contemplative and full of fresh air.
