Finally, all the autumn work on the ski trails pays off. Gorgeous ski around the farm today then back through the forest to the lookout over the Skeena.
‘Nature never makes haste; her systems revolve at an even pace. The buds swell imperceptibly, without hurry or confusion, as though the short spring days were an eternity’ – Thoreau
Lovely winter’s day on the farm, which fittingly rounds off another productive, plentiful year. Peace and happiness for the seasons to come.
The ski trails are well-tamped down through the fields and wetlands, but there is still not enough snow back along the old woods road yet.
December so far is a month of snow, skiing, snowshoes to the river, and wonderful company. Photos by Amy.
2011 began (more or less) with a lunar eclipse on the winter equinox (more or less) – auspicious new beginnings.
