This afternoon was sunny with a deep blue sky. I took a short walk up the hill by our house. The past several weeks have not seen much in the way of new snow, and we've become accustomed to the black snow banks all around town. A hike in the woods was reassuring that snow is still white and, even when it has thawed and frozen several times and become sandy in texture, still beautiful.
Having some quiet time in nature is good for the soul.
