Into the woods-

We have about 5 inches of snow now and it's still falling. I decided to go for a hike. What better time to explore the woods? You leave tracks so you can't get lost! So one hour of hiking in the Ozark Mtns! A wonderful time. No noise! Peaceful!! Somewhat treacherous, though. Hidden logs, rocks, root wads, had to go slow and careful.I had an idea of where I could explore and where I might cross the highway, I was right. I came out on W south and headed home. I was passed by three vehicles! The first was a nice elderly Ozarker in a little black truck. He stopped to see if I needed a ride. I told him I was hiking. The next encounter was two guys out jeeping. They were kind hearted too and asked if I was okay. When I said I was hiking they said "cool!" The third vehicle was a snow plow. I got way out of the way!! I'm thinking about another hike tomorrow! Hope you're not having to deal with this kind of weather. O well...Summer is inching closer!! Did I say I love Summer? Peace!

Saying you love summer is an understatement. You love summer heat and humidity! Sounds like you had a wonderful hike. I bet it is beautiful.

That sounds like the perfect way to enjoy a snow day. I wish I could hike alongside you, root wads and all.

How fun to take a hike! People are nice aren't they? Good think you got out of the way of the snow plow! that could have been ugly!

Enjoy the snow!
