100_5590 I’ve gotta get off the pot. I’m way behind on commenting, two strings of lights went out on the Christmas tree and of course I haven’t started my Christmas shopping. I have been out in the snowy woods enjoying nature and taking a lot of pictures which I will be sharing with you. As Always Thanks for Stopping By. Joe Todd and Linda.

Wonderful set of photos showing the seasons. They are all pretty. LOL, You better get out there and finish your shopping.

The park is pretty during any season of the year. I agree it looks like a winter wonderland this time of year. That is a huge rhododendron! Oh, and Linda, would have to pull off the great snowman caper to come and get my snowman. It isn't my snowman; it is sitting on the premises of a fuel station. It is one of the nicest outside artificial snowmen I have seen.

Beautiful photos - I'd like to walk along that road with the tall trees and listen to the sounds of the forests.
Cheers.

I hope you managed to get off that pot Joe and get some things done! LOL

Looks like another great place for a fantastic hike... I love winter wonderlands and wish I could stay out long enough to get some great photos, but I have so much trouble dealing with the cold these days! Ah, getting old... it sucks! Perhaps we all need to move in with SMB... haha!

Hi Joe and Linda, What a neat WINTER walk you all took... I love seeing that old cabin in all seasons. Gorgeous--especially the winter ones. I love Rhodies... We have 3 in our yard --and I wish we had MORE. Rhododendrons are so pretty in winter....

Merry Christmas to you both.
Betsy

Super shots and I like the framing. Brrr it looks cold there. What a great park. Love the old cabin too. Rhododendron is our state flower and they grow wild everywhere. So of course there are now a zillion varities and every yard has several.
Being outside and taking pictures beats shopping anyday. MB
