If you wanted to experience a "perfect winter's day" then it was definitely yesterday, February 3. The bluest of blues, the whitest of whites and just enough chill in the air to add a little pink to your cheeks without your nose turning red. Thank you to my good friend, MJ, for phoning me in the morning and telling me to stop whining about the winter and get my butt outside for a walk and a stern "don't forget your camera".
I am very lucky to live right on one of the many beautiful trails in Aurora. These trails go for miles from the north to the south to the east and west. The Lakeview Link wanders at the back of some beautiful houses, that even in the winter you can barely see because of the lovely tree coverage that has been maintained.
The trees looked like they were covered in really yummy icing sugar.
I was expecting to see lots more little squirrels and birds, but the amount of noise my feet were making crunching on the snow would have scared every living thing in the woods away.
The sumac all had beautiful white top hats on.
A picture is worth a 1000 words, so here are a few more pictures of my walk which normally takes me about 25 minutes, this day was more like an hour as I clicked away.
