Through the Woods on Snowshoes...

Deep into the woods and over the river... what wondrous Winter sights will we discover as we snowshoe with the grand-kiddos?  Grab your snowshoes and come with us! You don't want to be left behind. The snow is deep and the air is crisp... 

off we go on our final Liberty adventure.

If you want to experience the first two adventures, click on them!

Remember to take long wide steps 
so you don't stumble on your feet!

Our snowshoes will keep us from sinking up to our knees
in the deep fluffy snow.

Off we go!

Mark this Magical Pine in your memory 
so we can find our way back.

An old Ash tree greets us.
Can you tell which way the Winter Winds have blown?

The bark of the trunk 
brings a splash of color to our Winter scene.

On the other side we find a village of insect homes
and a Woodpecker's favorite place to dine.

Look ahead!


Can you hear the water as it trips over the stones in it's path?
The sound is soothing and pleasant.

Do we dare cross over this snowy old bridge?

Yes! We dare!

 Walk carefully and don't look down at the water 
or you just might slip.

Surely this is where the Snow Fairies live.

Frozen drips of water at the entrance to their home.

The burgundy seeds of the Birch are the bird's delight.

They seem to dance in the cold Winter air.

The sun peaks out from behind the clouds 
and begins to warm the snow 
into drops.

As the forest brightens we sense we're almost back 
to where we began.

There! The Magical Pine greets us.

Take off our snow shoes... 
let's go get some hot chocolate!

Now wasn't that fun?

Thanks for coming along with us!

  4. What an utterly charming post! Your grandkids must have loved the snowshoe tour, and if they did I'm sure you did. Hope your fingers didn't get too cold making those photos.

  5. I just snowshoed for the first time in Keystone, CO over the holidays. I thought it was beautiful there, but your pictures are even more spectacular. I'm now sold on snowshoeing. Thanks for taking me along!

  8. Thank you for this delightful journey and one of the most stunning snowfalls I've ever seen ... and I've seen many! I love to snowshoe in fresh snow and have the perfect spot up north at our cottage. Have not been on them yet this year but getting anxious and even best if the grandboys join me! Actually, some the prettiest snowfalls are around Easter!

  9. Don't normally like it, but wow that's what I call snow.

  16. Yes, that was so much fun! Magical and beautiful.

  17. Stunning photos! That is the kind of snow we in the Deep South can only dream about. It's a wonderland!
