Postcard from Up North

I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree, or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines. ~Henry David Thoreau

(Snowfall is welcomed like a beloved visitor here. We gladly tramp through deepest snow, and take note.)

    I wish I could tramp through such a beautiful white scenario far from here…
    I’ve a blue sky to offer you.

      I will accept your blue sky gift always, Paula.

    Beautiful quote and a beautiful pic Maureen, to illustrate Thoreau’s lovely words.

      Thank you Diane–truly a beautiful scene in the woods.
