A Woodsy Ramble



Two weeks ago we went for a walk in a foot of snow. There was no trace of snow today in the woods. This time we hiked up alongside Nile Creek, about 20 minutes north on the highway. 

The hike was rugged, muddy, a bit drizzly, but oh, so beautiful. Refreshment for the soul. Rushing water, moss dripping from branches, lush ferns and invigorating woodsy smells.

I'm linking to Mosaic Monday, hosted by Mary of the Little Red House.

Beautiful! We had to go a bit higher to find snow today! We've been getting lots of that rain too.

Lorrie you are truly in God's country. What I admire about you and your husband is that you get out and enjoy nature so often. This collage reminds me of our hikes when we lived in Campbell River.

What a nice place, but you had to be careful not to slip as one can see.

Hi Grandma,
Don't you just love the sound of that word? Obviously I have missed so much in the last couple months. Many congrats to you.
Lorrie, your tutorials are wonderful. I may have to try that necklace.
The heart header is terrific. It is just so cheerful.
Thank you for your kind words on Jeff's surgery. He is in God's hands and I know all is well.

Happy new year.
xoxo,
Barb

Totally looks like Oregon's hikes...makes me miss the west coast. TFS!
Also, how did you get that beautiful picture at the top of your blog site?

Wow. The scenery is breathtaking. The picture of the creek looks sort of heart-shaped. Love it. I have got to visit Canada!

Hi Lorrie, thanks for your comment on my "photographers links post"...I think the Mellow Yellow Monday, the Motion Thursday look kinda fun. I haven't had time to go through all of them, but what a great idea! Your pics are great...and you are right, it just takes practise and keep clickin!
Was great to hear from you!

So pretty that they could be on a postcard!

Loved your flower necklace too. Could fit right in with the Wedding Wear linky. :)
