Golden and Frosty December

December blessed us with many sunny days, lifting our spirits as we enter the shortest days of the season.

Since I am presently unable to run, I've been hiking out at the forest preserve instead, and bringing my camera along.

I was lucky this morning as a light sheen of frost tipped the prairie grasses.

All this "slowing down" allowed me to discover new single track trails carved off the beaten path. I learned that local outdoor enthusiasts, keen on maintaining the health of the forest, worked to clear the area of invasive trees and shrub and in the process, created these new trails and built rustic bridges across the waterway that meanders through the property.

I'm finding lovely woodland elements to fill my camera's frame.

And getting my fill of the outdoors, complete with some of that white fluffy stuff.

So long to December, the Year 2019 and the Decade 2010's! I await the new year and decade with continued optimism and thankfulness.
