Snowshoeing the morning of my colonoscopy prep! Beautiful weather, mid-30s, good snow that kept us out of the not-quite-frozen places in the brook, on a nearby marshy trail that’s been recently abandoned (no longer maintained).
There are some downed branches and trunks, which we stepped on, over, around, and a few we walked or ducked under. A couple of the bridges were a bit catawampus as well.
The red winterberries (Ilex verticillata), lining the left side of the snowy path below and hither and thither elsewhere, really stand out.
The icy, frosty formations — stars, filament, needle-like, serrated, splintery — caught my eye, too.
An animal running across the snow on a frozen brook left this artful elongated “track”:
