Snow Hike

I had an extraordinary weekend hiking up to the clouds in the Catskills. I had never hiked through snow before but it turned out to be one of the most beautiful, satisfying hikes I had ever been on.  When I reached the peak, all breathless and red-cheeked, the trees were bare, the sky was blue, and the snow was a perfect, untouched white.  I didn't feel cold at all. 

These ferns were so pleased with themselves.  Like two miniature trees in an open field. I don't know that I've ever seen snow so soft and pure. 


  1. I spent the weekend in the mountains, too -- the Poconos. I skied hard, but not as many days as I wanted to. The spirit was willing, the body was weak. (I got sick.) But it sure was beautiful.

  2. just beautiful,thanks for sharing.

  3. I keep waiting for it to snow here! Beautiful picture.

  4. It sounds heavenly! I long for snow but we've only received a little dusting. Thanks for your beautiful picture!
