A Walk in the Snow

Winter Storm Nemo left us with about 4 inches of snow. 
After the guys shoveled the driveway, the sun came out. 
Although there was a brisk wind, my husband Steve and I headed out back for a walk. 
Of course our beagle Holly came along. She takes her role as "Trail Blazer" very seriously.
We were rewarded with crunchy trails, crisp air, lovely views, and precious time together.

"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape.
Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn't show."
Andrew Wyeth

"I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown,
for going out, I found, was really going in."

"The true charm of pedestrianism does not lie in the walking, or in the scenery, but in the talking.
The walking is good to time the movement of the tongue by,
and to keep the blood and the brain stirred up and active; 
the scenery and the woodsy smells are good to bear in upon a man
an unconscious and unobtrusive charm and solace to eye and soul and sense;
but the supreme pleasure comes from the talk."
Mark Twain

"Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more."
Vincent Van Gogh

"It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts,
as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation of old trees,
that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit."
Robert Louis Stevenson

"Yes, Holly, it really is time to go back now."
