Default Frozen Bays Mt

Have been so pleased to have many family members visiting this Christmas vacatation, and, of course, we've been out enjoying lots of hikes in the wintry weather. Took a little trip at nearby Bays Mt Park a few days ago. The little lake in the center of the park was a bit colder than usual!

Much of the shoreline was frozen & snow-covered, a rare sight for us in East Tennessee!

We were also fascinated at the patterns created by all the frozen bubbles out on the lake!

This White Throated Sparrow seemed unfazed by the cold & snow...

But we had to do some "digging" to find the mosses under the snow. (Have been trying to learn more of our local species. Here are two - Hypnum, often called "fern moss," and Rhodobryum, often called "rose moss.")

We've had plenty more snowy hikes recently, and I will try to get more photos posted soon. Hope your Christmas was as blessed as mine!

Thanks for any comments, critique, and suggestions!

A wonderful series, I love the vertical of the frozen bubbles, the vertical orientation accents the texture more in my opinion. The sparrow is really good also - so cute.

Great shot of the W T Sparrow! They seldom stay still long enough for me to get a good picture.
