SHEER DOODLE JOY!!


As usual, I've got my nose into something ~


~ as we venture up this trail that we discovered a few years ago.
 Ron and I decided to try it while Jim was at work for the afternoon.


Before we started climbing the slope 
we stopped and soaked up this view
~ pond and ducks ~
so tranquil.


Just to the right the waters began to drop off 
turning into a torrent 
sweeping any unsuspecting branches and ice away.


 All around 
the lakes are covered in pale teal blue 
caused by the many changes in snow and ice layering.
The sunlight causes the various shades
and also appears differently
when it's foggy.


With all of that going on down below me 
I really wanted to climb this slope
because I love to climb.


Birch groves were every where


 We even heard and saw this stream hiding off to the side
which I do believe worked it's way down to that pond I showed you.


No greenery as of this Easter weekend
(even though Ron wants you to know that his snowdrops are pushing through
only a handful but that gives us hope)


 I hear sounds that make me want to investigate
and
believe you me
I WOULD INVESTIGATE!


But I listen this time
because 
I AM HAPPY!
(what gives it away!)

  2. You certainly have had your fair share of snow this Winter. Here's hoping it will all melt away very soon, but meantime I love seeing your photos.

    1. Sophie and I took this drive w/o Jim today which is the 1st time driving solo for almost a year. I was exhausted at he end but it was a GOOD exhaustion!!!

      Sophie truly was overjoyed with the hike and the last picture says it all!

      Cheers Jean!
      All the best!

  8. That last photo has to be one of my favorite shots of SD EVER, Ron! We had snow sometime in the past week or so ~ not much. It was fun watching the weathermen twist and turn trying to make the snowfall into a news event ~ which it wasn't! Now it's HOT! Trees leafing, blossoms budding, flowers bursting! Sorry, my friend!

    1. Saw Jim's photo of the latest snow dump and prayer flags! You may not be able to catch a break, Ron, but you sure turn all that adversity into lovely photos. Terry left yesterday afternoon for a six day trip with one of his best buds: Laughlin and Vegas. He's reveling in the fact that he can even do this and not have to be back at work for months without a break! Have a great day!

    2. Sophie truly was in 7th Heaven this day and the last picture really shows us this fact. Yes, the snow really has stuck around this year 10+ storms since late January. Things are melting now and I did see one flower (snowdrop) struggling to make itself visible. Next week should be better.

      So you are all alone for awhile ~~ no carousing, hear me!!

      Cheers!
      Ron
