Finally, we have some snow again. So far this winter has been unusually warm and dry, with only a couple real snowfalls that melted quickly. This one probably will too, so I made the most of it while it lasted.
Today is gloriously sunny but very cold with a wind chill in the teens. So, I went for a walk on the Paul Henry Thornapple Trail near Middleville. This is a great trail. It is a paved trail on an old railroad bed and it runs right alongside the Thornapple river. Today there were plenty of ducks, geese, and swans out, and they did not seem to mind the cold at all.
I know there are many people in Michigan who do not enjoy the winter. I think it is because they have not taken the chance to experience the beauty and wonder that it has to offer; try it sometime. There are so many different things that you can do. Try snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, or just take a hike. The most important thing is to get out and experience it. You never know what you will find around the next bend in the trail. Enjoy!
