First Snowshoe in Northern Wisconsin

It has been snowing, snowing, snowing in Northern Wisconsin. Today the temperature rose enough to haul out the snowshoes and head into the woods for an hour or so. Conditions: Temperature: 14 degrees. Precipitation: Light fluffy snow. Snowpack: Lots. Noise level: quiet. Eyesight level: absolutely beautiful. I’ll let the pictures tell the story.

The weighted-done trees stood like sentinels protecting (or warning) those who wished to enter the woods.

Just as I was taking the picture of an interesting branch, the only breeze of the day hit, blowing snow off the tree onto my camera and face.

The man.

If you look closely, you can see the snowflakes floating down.
