This morning was colder than any recent rambles with the temperature <32 to start out with a nearly full moon setting.
Atmosphere seemed hazy so distance pics were worthless, but the trillium were blooming as were the dogwood. The people were fewer, the animals scarce … woodpeckers were plentiful though.
