More Views of Spring on the Vermilon River. A Post to My World Tuesday.

River Bank


Small Falls
 As I said spring comes in fits and starts in the north. Today is overcast, about 40F and raining.  The snow, now crystallized, is melting away, but slowly in the forest and along the river bank because of the shade from the trees. This situation still inhibits Boom and I from the more rugged trails. I'd say another week, but we could still get snow.
A Gaggle of Geese.

One Legged Geese
 These Geese are just standing on one foot. They are not injured.

 They're exceptional fliers.

  2. Love the geese. They're really lovely creatures. A little on the messy side, however. Good trick with the crow. It gets them every time.

  3. Hey! Spring has arrived! It doesn't involve donning a NASA like outfit to go outside. That is good enough for now. Yeah, there is still snow in the deep woods but I think that will be gone in a week or so. Here's looking forward to North woods adventures!

  17. The geese are interesting birds Louise. I think the bad rep comes from their urbanization.
