More snows!!

This morning Paulina and I took some time when we went to the mail to drive south of town and check on the overflow of Spring Creek, and the status of the geese. It was a trip worth the time. Here is what we found. We were about two miles south of town, and when we got back home we could hear the sound from the train bridge. This stretch of geese was about 1/4 of a mile long.

I will drop in a few more shots. It was hard to capture the image of the wings as the geese were circling to land. I wish we had brought the video camera, it was amazing.

While we were there, I noticed the colors, especially the blues in the shallow water near this old tree. I think this would make a great water-color painting, so hopefully, I talk the time to do it this summer, or maybe an oil, oh what fun that would be.

After we got to town, we went to the train bridge behind our house and check on the spring flow. We noticed that there is a major piece of ice butting up against the pillars. This bridge is currently owned by a private individual, so not being kept up by any railroad or engineers or such. It is getting to the point that we no longer feel comfortable crossing it, but I guess each spring was always a bit scary when you look down and see the large chunks of ice.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures of our spring.
