behind the house

My friend's house backs onto US Forest Service land filled with trails and wonderful views. After a stop at the house for lunch and a warm up it was time to head up the hill behind the house for a quick view.

By the time we headed out the temperature had dropped into the teens, the wind was howling, and snow flakes were in the air. My desires to stay out a while to absorb the views conflicted with the difficulty I was having standing still. Brrr! that wind was cold!

I know I will need to return here to visit and to wander.
