Take a walk with me in the mountains of Colorado and I’ll show you the beauty of winter is in the details. The silence of snow falling in a forest brings peace that seeps into your bones along with the cold.
As you start moving again to warm up, it’s the little things that catch the eye. Puffed up birds in the branches like living ornaments or the summer home of the chipmunks warm and secure under the drifts.
One of our favorite picnic spots is waiting for us.
If it’s cold enough, we’ll pause to watch ice form on a still lake or the way a waterfall splashes freezing water on rocks and branches.
Join me next time and bring your camera!
