An Easter Weekend Walk in the Woods
This past Saturday, on the Easter weekend, I went for a walk in the woods with my friend Holly. We went to Voyageur Park, which still isn't open - but we parked outside the gate and entered the park on foot down the long road toward the river.
It was a beautiful day - sun shining, blue skies, and the snow was really starting to melt. There were many little creeks full of running water in the woods. I love the contrast between the nearly black water and white snow.
We passed over a bridge at one point and looked down at the ice breaking up and the very high spring run-off.
Despite the fact that the park was closed, other people had entered the park like we had. We encountered about 4 or 5 other groups of people also walking along the road through the woods. These two men had very serious-looking cameras and were taking photos of birds.
Holly and I had a lovely afternoon walking along, looking at things, talking, just breathing the fresh spring air. We even saw a deer jump across the road in front of us at one point but, alas, I didn't have my camera ready at the time. It was nice just to be with a friend on a beautiful early spring day.
