The Peliated Woodpecker was also still in his area. We hear him every time we walk this portion of the trail. Hammering away at trees, looking for food high up in a tree he worked non-stop. I saw deer tracks and sometimes if your lucky you can see just where they stayed overnight under a pine tree. An indentation in the snow gives it all away.
There are people out there that just can't wait for winter to be over. I think its unfortunate because they haven't learned how to "use" the season to their advantage. How to get outside, enjoy the fresh air, a great workout while skiing or snowshoeing. How to get back to nature and the simpler times. Walking out in the woods gives you inner peace, it de-stresses you. How can you not take in the beauty and enjoy the simple things like looking up and seeing the most amazing blue. Last weekend I commented that the sky was the colour of a tropical ocean. It was beautiful.
This weekend we will go for another snowshoe along another part of the trail. Maybe you will join us?
