A winter morning walk #2
The woods are a little ragged along here. The undergrowth is heavy and downed trees lay scattered on the forest floor. A few gnawed and pointed stumps suggest the haphazard logging of beavers, but there is no sign of them now.
Sweater and jacket feel good in the damp morning air. The dampness in the woods brings out faded browns and timid oranges and pale greens, winter colors that give off a faint but lovely glow in the heavy air, suggesting a warmth that is still months away.
