Cold morning walks

“Every time I go outside, the world is different.  This has happened all my life.”

The thought of waking up then heading immediately to the woods is a horrid thought, especially deep into autumn.  We awake to the lingering darkness, the frost covering the ground.  It’d be much easier, indeed, to put on a pot of coffee, listen to the pop and cackle of the steam, wrap myself in a blanket and wait out the warmth of the day.  Instead, I put on my warm clothes, take the dog on a walk into the silent woods.  We have our favorite spots, and some mornings are nicer than others, but sometimes you get a view like this and it makes the cold, the creak of winter bones tolerable.  More than tolerable, though, some mornings are perfect.

    Check out Chadwick Pond on the Haverhill/Boxford line. Lots of nice trails in there.
