Nature Walk

We are in the Midwest visiting family for the holidays. Today the girl and I took a walk looking for a beautiful deer we have spotted a few times while here. Unfortunately we did not come across the deer, but we did enjoy our time outside bird watching and looking for animal tracks in the snow.

We watched the geese for a while and then we accidentally scared them away.

There was also two hawks in the tress.

Autry went swinging for a while, and then we followed some animal tracks.

We were surprised by all the different tracks left in the snow.

Taking a nature walk is a wonderful way to spend the morning. Tomorrow we head home to 70 degree weather and blue skies. I have enjoyed the snow and cold, but I am ready to be back in California, to be home.
