False winter

Beech Nut.

The morning after yesterday’s snow dawned bright, blue, sunny. I couldn’t wait long after breakfast before taking a hike with Jack.

We were the first ones up Beech Hill this morning. The day was so bright that I had trouble seeing anything through my camera’s viewfinder. But I managed a few photos. Alas, I didn’t get a shot of the Red-tailed Hawk being harassed by crows, or the solitary Snow Bunting the flitted up the slope very near us as we ascended.

But I did get a few of the landscape. Wintry—even though winter is nearly four weeks away.
