Transformation to water

Temperatures in the mid-30s felt positively warm after our dip into single digits this week.

A day to walk, or a day to ride? Neither was ideal. The roads were mainly dry, but much narrower than normal. The inch or two of snow that fell on New Year's day crusted over and froze, so off-road walking surfaces were a bit slippery.

I chose walking, twice. I walked in the morning for exercise, fast walking along the plowed edges of the road. And in the afternoon I wandered to Harold Parker State Forest for a bit of walking with my camera.

I was rewarded by scenes of transformation, melting, patterns, ice against water.
