With the foot of snow that we got last week and the rising temperatures, I knew there was going to be some snow melting in some of the local creeks. I will admit on the way down to the creek that I wasn’t expecting for there to be five inches of melting snow on the ground. I quickly realized that I was going to get wet with a small creek flowing under the snow that was on the path down into the creek.
After finally getting down to the creek my feet were soaking wet, I lost the path and wasn’t unable to get back up the hill that I came down. I took some pictures and started following the creek to try to find a easier way to get out. After a while of walking along the shore, I found a bend in the river and needed to find a way to get out!
On the way to try to find an easier hill to walk up and get out of the creek; I found this perfect deer print in the snow.
I finally found this hill that I was pretty sure I could walk up and realized almost instantly that it was way to steep for a normal person wearing sneakers to walk up. After getting up about half way up the hill, there was mud and leaves under the four inches of snow and found some sticks that I could used as ice picks to help get up the rest of the way. At the top, I had a ton of snow in my sneakers and had a miserably cold long walk back home. But it was nice to get out of of the house and see some nature.
