Tons of new snow has fallen. School was cancelled for two days in a row! The woods and paths are still feet deep in unbroken snow. Its really quite beautiful so last night I went for a short snow shoe walk under the moon. [We are approaching the full moon – Feb 9] It was wonderful and peaceful. The air felt clear and fresh. I had put on my headlamp, but with the moon and the snow, I really didn’t need it. It was easy to cross the field and find my way. The snow continued to fall and looking across the river was like looking through a veil; all that was visible were lights suspended against a scrim. When there were no lights objects just faded into the night. Rather than pictures, I thought I would share some sounds from this snow shoe walk.
