Old Man Winter

He showed up today. I am just going to say “yippe.” I was feeling a bit green with envy seeing all the beautiful winter photos being posted. I am just kidding about that, as I understand that many are looking for signs of spring to show up. This was our very first stroll in the snow in the state of Oregon. For some reason, it is very easy for me to venture out with my camera in hand. We are near the Santiam ┬áRiver and we made this discovery, this morning.
