Every now and then a snow day is required. . .to lift the spirits and to take one beyond the gray skies of the valley into the glorious sunshine above! Today was such a day. Brent and I left the cares of life behind and went to the snowy mountains. Work could wait. . .it was time to refresh the spirit!
The pure white snow buffers noises; peace and calm surround. There is no noise unless you make it yourself. Boots on snow provide squeak and thump --- but when standing silently in the forest you can nearly hear yourself think!
A lake bed is frozen over and looks small and insignificant when covered with snow. During the summer months this is an active and vital lake, swarming with people, frogs, and fish! Many a happy hour has been spent hiking around this lake.
