Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Afternoon

I did something completely unexpected and spontaneous. Even for me. I was cruising happily down Franklin Road in my vintage Jeep when I came to the intersection that leads to Radnor Lake State Park.

I’m aware that the temperature was hovering somewhere in the mid to upper 20’s. I’m also aware that it had snowed a bit the night before and the possibility of black ice on the roads existed.

Still, I chose to turn right onto the Otter Creek Road that leads to one of my favorite places on earth.

I confess that not all my spontaneous choices work out. Some end up being rather meh. Some just don’t work at all. This time, I chose right.

All of Radnor Lake was covered with a soft and think white blanket of snow. Fewer people braved the icy weather, so it was much more peaceful and quiet. I could actually hear my self think, hear the sounds of nature hibernating but still very much alive.

I got out my smart phone to snap a few pictures to remember this one day when I hiked in the snow. I even saw a squirrel and a red cardinal. Plus I got in my 30 minutes of exercise for the day. How is that not a win-win?
