Tuscarora State Park 2015

I was sorting through old pictures and found these from 2015 and wanted to share them here tonight because they are really inspiring.  This has been our favorite trail to hike for a long time.  We had just bought our Nikon camera so I was taking pictures of everything that caught my eye.  

Let It Snow

It snowed here overnight so I went out to walk and take pictures.  I watched and listened to the nuthatches enjoying the feeder.  I love how snow feels so quiet and peaceful. “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you…
