New Years Day
New Years Day is traditionally the day for First Day Hikes. Even in the cold, I love the chance to takes the dogs out to a new hike and go exploring.
This year I took the dogs hiking at a local historical site. It was quiet, cold, sunny, and extremely peaceful. It was my first time taking the new camera lens the Mr. gave me for Christmas and I spent hours taking it for a spin. Below I’ve shared some of my favorite shots from that day. Winter is usually a time of cold, rest, sleep, browns, whites, hibernation, looking inward and preparing for the Spring. It is our yin, to summer’s yang. While it’s easy to get down about the dullness and lifelessness of Winter, taking a hike while looking for beauty just goes to show there’s beauty all around us, no matter what time of year.
