The Weekend

I've been busy this weekend. Baking cookies and bread, cleaning the house, shopping, picking up the dogs' little gifts in the backyard and filling up the bird feeders. This morning I sneaked in a little hike in Devil's Den. Hiking in winter is not only really cold, but with the leaves gone, you see a different side of the woods. This section of the woods has a little waterfall. When it freezes, it looks beautiful.

This year, however, we haven't had a lot of rain so there isn't a lot of water running over the rocks. The icicles aren't as spectacular.

We did catch this little surprise. A white possum crossing frozen Lee Creek. It allowed me to get fairly close to it. I wonder how rare white possums are?
