Default A Snowy Park

A few views of the recent cold and snow here at the home park. Our playground includes a brick sculpture area - this brick bluebird has a new white jacket!

You can see that the only playground visitors were some squirrels (looking for the "nutty" park ranger?)

Shallower portions of our park lake had a good coating of ice and snow - thick enough to bear the weight of a coyote, but not of a person!

Deeper portions of the lake did not freeze, but did have a good "coat" of mist and fog on the icy mornings.

Speaking of icy, these Ring-Billed Gulls must have been practicing their ice skating!

A Red Fox and a 'Possum shared a trail footbridge - you can see where the 'Possum was dragging his (cold and naked) tail…

Hope you enjoyed these glimpses of a (for us) rather rare cold and snowy spell. Thanks for any comments & critique!

Wonderful, as usual, Mole! I just can't bring myself to go out in that stuff, though!
