Five more posts and I'll be at 500! What should I do to celebrate?
With a blanket of fresh snow coming overnight and the promise of rain and warmer weather tomorrow, I decided to forgo my regiment of taking it easy as I recover from the flu and do a little skiing this afternoon. With no wind and temperatures right around 30 degrees, there was no need for heavy wool pants. Jeans were fine. A friend and I skied out at Yankee Springs. The picture of me is beside the overlook for the Devil’s Soupbowl, which is really just a big hole in the ground (the name makes it sound more exciting than it is). I was trying to give him instructions on the camera when he snapped the shot.
Our route took us by Hall Lake where ice fishermen were busy trying their luck. A couple of years ago I wrote about an evening fishing trip on Hall Lake that my dog and I made.
This morning I took this picture of a local farm that will probably become the site for our new hospital. I’ve been meaning to photograph this farm for sometime. No one has lived there since Howard died over two years ago. After Howard’s death, I wrote a poem which I posted here about him and the farm that was in their family for 133 years.
