A Trek in the Woods

After the turkey was in the oven and all the fixins were prepped, we headed out on our snow shoes. The experimental forest behind out house is full of trails to explore and a great place to snow shoe.
On top of all that we are thankful for this year, the day was a true blessing. The sky was blue, the air was crisp and clear, and best of all we were together enjoying each other's company surrounded by God's awesome creation.

Hannah climbed up on this rock to see if she could spot any wildlife. Unfortunately she didn't have any luck. We did however see quite a few tracks - rabbit, fox and coyote. We also had a squirrel chattering at us as we must have been too close to his nest.

We took the opportunity to cut the boughs for our advent wreath. Check back later to see the finished product and find out about our advent celebrations.
Soon it was time to head back to the house to warm by the fire and put the finishing touches on our Thanksgiving feast. Hopefully we will have many more opportunities to get out on the snow shoes this winter.
