A Little Winter Fun

There had to be 60 to 70 deer in a 1/2 mile stretch around Pomme de Terre River. Above is Pomme de Terre School and Cemetery where some of my husbands ancestors went to school and are buried. To the left of the picture area is where the old village of Pomme de Terre was.
 This weekend we had hoped to spend 3 days hiking through the woods, sledding on the hills, walking on frozen water and just enjoying the splender of the winter wonderland of our great state. Due to an impending snow storm (10-14" of snow is headed our way) we had to cut our long weekend short. We did make the most of our 24 hours up north though with a little hiking, sledding and even a little nature watching on the way to dinner.
