Sharon Woods - Beautifully Cold 

You may remember a POST I made back in October about the day Ap0k and I spent in Sharon Woods. On that day I took a bunch of photos of the trees in their full autumn colors. A friend had asked that I go back and take pictures again once it snowed, so this post is dedicated to Nautleyriver. Hope you like the pictures NR!

Because it was only 30F out today there were, of course, a lot less people at the park then there was last time. There were a few die-hard runners and some people like us who don’t have the sense to stay in out of the cold. We walked a good way around the lake again. I tried to match some of these pictures to some of the ones I took last time so that you can see the full effect of the seasonal changes.
One thing I find fascinating is the wildlife. You would think that when it gets so cold animals would go somewhere warmer. As you will see in some of the pictures below, we saw quite a few ducks, geese, and even a squirrel. I know nature makes them hardy, but it just seems outrageous to see a duck swimming in 32F water. My butt would be frozen in a matter of seconds, yet they are paddling around like it’s no big deal.

As you can see, it really was cold enough to freeze up almost an entire lake. I wouldn’t suggest trying to walk on it of course because you would fall right through the ice. Even though it was cold it was a downright gorgeous day and we had a blast. All I need is a pair of earmuffs and I will be set. I can’t wear a hat because my hair is almost always in a ponytail. Actually my head reaaly never got cold, but my ears felt like they were going to freeze right off a few times. Yep, I think I will go buy earmuffs tomorrow. A red pair and a white pair. If there is one thing I remember from when I was little it’s that you should always have at least twp pair of gloves, two hats, 2 scarves, etc. That’s just in case one of them gets wet. Oh, and never never never eat the red bird berries or you will DIE right on the spot!
