Come Exploring-Lots of Pics

First thing I would like to do is to direct you to a wonderful blog written by a Godly young lady.  Her name is Elizabeth and she has become a friend to my daughter.  This woman has such a heart for God it's a blessing to read about. Elizabeth's blog

Second thing I'd like to do is to take you with me exploring our property.  We've been here five years and there are places I haven't been yet.  Remember last weekend when Ollie hit the dirt?  Well, before that he was busy clearing fencelines along our property lines.  With the ground good and frozen, I took the opportunity to walk some of the cleared lines and discovered some real treasures.
We start out heading east toward the back of our property.

My Newfie, Jenny, breaking trail.

We head straight back to the big birch tree and find the trail Ollie made.

This is Jenny posing.  It's a picture for my daughter who loves this dog.

Now we've headed north.  I discovered a whole mess of cedar trees on our property that I didn't know we had.

And look!!Blueberry swamps and Labrador tea!!  I know where I'm going picking this summer.

Found some tracks back there.  A lot of fox tracks like these, a few mouse tracks, tons of deer tracks and....

A lone wolf traveled through here today.  By the size of the track it looks like a Timber. (No they're not Jenny's. :)  )

Heading back west you can see the wold and the fox tracks side by side down the trail.  The fox tracks are from a day ago.

I think Jenny got pooped out.  You can see our barn in the background.

Coming across the fields towards home, I thought I'd try to be artsy and take a good picture.  :)  Our plow at rest in front of the oat field.

It was a beautiful day for a walk today.  Temp was 30 and the sun kept peeking out.  I hope you enjoyed yourself.  Time to put on some dry socks and have a hot cup of coffee.

Ahh! My beautiful woods! And my adorable dog :) I'm glad someone else is exploring those woods since I can't right now. I'm looking forward to coming home and being able to do that again! Love you lots!

Beautiful walk in your woods and fields. Looks as though you have a little more snow than we do. We've seen lots of wolf tracks around here lately, too. They're probably pretty hungry since the lack of snow enables the deer to get away from them with ease. Thanks for taking us along!
