Today started off like it held promise of a clear day.
Clear skies and cool temperatures, as the sun rose up over the hill behind us, I captured the sun breaking over the MacHattie homestead.
So after lunch we decided to take a walk through the woods on our property. There’s an old road that circles the property and I have been working the last couple years to keep it clear of alder and brush. Plenty of rabbit tracks this year although we never see them up near the house as usual. Maybe the spring will hold a bounty of bunnies! 🙂 Also seen deer tracks, a couple partridge up in a tree but they flew away before I could get the camera ready, another small bird I think is a robin and what might be a small weasel according to the tail trail it left behind. So here are some pictures of the wood trail and down at the lake.
Lots of trees have ice on them like below.
We made it to the lake but we were not the first one’s there.
Trudging along 🙂
Not sure what kind of bird is in the pic below.
There’s a natural spring here.
Lots of activity here at the ‘turn around’.
And we’ve come full circle. Not sure what kind of tree that is in the picture below on the left. Its leaves hang on throughout the winter and only fall off with the new buds appearing in the spring.
It was a good walk, took us about an hour! 🙂
