I don't want to jinx anything by saying it but.... I think spring has finally come to my little part of the world! The temperatures are rising, the snow is melting, and the gnomes have cleaned out their doors and are starting to think about emerging from their dens! :0)
This little guy is sure ready for spring! I found him sitting as happily as can be sunning himself on our wood pile.... I hope the cats don't see him! Happy Spring everyone!
Yesterday morning we got up early, dressed ourselves warmly and headed to the local Ice Caves. The hike up to them (the way we went) is straight up and we were basically walking on our hands and knees because it was so steep! An hour later we arrived and boy was it worth the effort!
Inside the caves looking out....

We had them all to ourselves the entire time we were there!
Time to say goodbye.
The walk home. Not many people get to see our community from this view. See what I mean about being steep? It was a long walk but it was well worth the effort.
