Following the Creek: 16 Creek Photos

I was glad to see the snow and ice thawed off of Rice Creek, so I thought I would follow it around and get a few photos. It a little difficult walking in the dead grass; I had to be careful not to turn my ankle. Overall, it was a wonderful day.

Bitter Cold Just A Day Away

Looking back at this day of 40 degree weather, bitter cold and snow was just a day away, and these Mallard ducks were enjoying their last days.

Soon the creek will be iced over.

Leaving the ducks, I headed up this familiar trail. It was supposed to be warm, but there was a cold wind from the northwest. Winter was coming.

Before long my pleasant walk was almost over. The days are short and sunlight will soon be gone.
