|A Further View of the River.|
|Snow Covered River|
Several people have written that they wouldn't mind rambling through this area.My limit is about a 10 mile radius, about 3 miles out and 3 miles back mostly because I'm lame, and any more and I'm pushing it. Most of the land is crown land (government land), RR right of way, with some mining areas, not many. The point I'm making is that with no physical limitations you could hike for miles using trails and old forest roads, or the river and its many wetlands using a canoe. Yup, you could pan for gold and find some colour but don't give up your day job. There are a multitude of lakes, most uninhabited, some of which I'll explore with you as I did my immediate wetlands( see earlier posts). The bulk of the locals are both uncomfortable,and find no beauty in this extraordinary forest. You won't see anybody except on the weekends when they ride their ATV's. Your company will be the wildlife-animals, and birds which are wild, some of which are quite large. It's not a park or game preserve, it's the real forest. Sound appealing; so how far can you hike, and how much time do you have?

Beautiful river shots! It sure looks cold there though! I love your header as well.ReplyDelete
To msdewberry: The header is of course Boomer the wonder dog. Thanks for the visit and kind comments.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year, thanks for visiting me today. Boom looks like he enjoys the snow. Great photos and your area sounds wonderful. My Dobi would love it.ReplyDelete
The river is very lovely in this light. The snow hwlps a lot. How interesting that the river is still flowing, not frozen.ReplyDelete
I'm about to look for a map to find out the general area where you are. :)
I do love pictures of frozen water. The ice on the edges has such wonderful shapes.ReplyDelete
Have a super week.
Tauqua says "Hi" to Boomer.
PS Tauqua is our rescue dog, and we walk every day when the weather permits..
Great river shots. "Snow Covered River" is cool, because it is snow covered. But my favorite is "River Bend" where you can see the entire width of the river. Makes me curious as to its origin and where it is going. Thanks! I too would love to explore your area but that is likely not to happen any time soon!ReplyDelete
I don't find gray depressing either. Your world is pretty peaceful.ReplyDelete
These pictures look like they should be on a Christmas Card! I think there is nothing more beautiful then the gray and white....so peaceful!ReplyDelete
Thank you for stopping by my blog. I took that picture in Lille France about a week before Christmas. I thought the water freezing out of a drain pipe was pretty interesting and really showed how cold it really has been. But now I am in Portugal on the Algarve! Much warmer here!
Happy New Year!
To Debbie Smith: Thanks for the compliments and visit.ReplyDelete
To Ewok: Chaulk up another vote for gray is peaceful. Thanks Ewok.ReplyDelete
To Perry: It eventually ends up in the Great Lakes, and that's a long way. Thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
To Becky and Gary: Boom says hello back, and thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
To EG WOW: THe river never totally frezes over, or you would have very low levels of water in the Great Lakes. Thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
To Simone@Dobermans by the Sea: Thanks for the visit. I think you'd have to put a coat on your guys up here.ReplyDelete
Your gray is fantastic and lovely! I find the river fascinating!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful day.
Thanks Yoshi, I'm glad you enjoyed the photos.ReplyDelete
A lovely grey type at the river.ReplyDelete
You describe paradise, Gary! I envy you.ReplyDelete
Hi Hilke. I think Boom & I are lucky to live here. Thanks for the visit.ReplyDelete
I am glad it is still open water.ReplyDelete
Lovely landscape...beautiful imagesReplyDelete
Thanks Andrew for the kind words.ReplyDelete
The Vermilon carries a lot of water to the Great Lakes, I don't know if it ever totally freezes. Thanks for the visit NatureFootstep.ReplyDelete
Incredible snow pics for Watery Wednesday!ReplyDelete
And you have a very beautiful dog! It's a similar dog our neighbors had, and when we moved to the next street it appeared several times in front of our window!
Boom is a bit of a show stopper and loves every minute of it. Thanks for the compliments.ReplyDelete
Gary, I think I could hike forever there.ReplyDelete
It sounds and looks perfect.
A magical, soft peace in these photos!ReplyDelete
To holdingmoments: I don't know about forever but for a longtime, yes.ReplyDelete
To Greyscale Territory: Yes it's peaceful, but cold also.ReplyDelete
