A New Year on Lake Superior

Embrace the beauty

Five days of below zero cold.  The magnificent beauty of winter is at it’s best and the quality of the snow for snowshoeing is perfect. Chickadees, downy and pileated woodpeckers work to find food. Deer tracks cover the woods. The bay in front of our house has frozen over, but a strong lake wind could change that in a minute. A fisherman has ventured out on the tenuous ice.

And…my 3 year old buck friend has survived another hunting season!
