Columbia Road in Winter

Just a simple post and photograph.  The day was filled with outdoor life-snowshoe in the morning, Polar Plunge at noon and a ski after that....in fresh falling snow.  I can't seem to keep up with it all.  Cold day in this late February stretch, but one to enjoy-the sun is higher (when not snowing) and light wind, so it's one to spend outside.  Columbia Road (or avenue)  is the main north south gravel  "thoroughfare" through the Township of Hewett and one I travel a million times a year on my way to Levis Mound.  It takes a short east west jog through the ghost town of Columbia and changes it's name to Fisher Avenue.  The snow this day was beautiful, big softly falling flakes that had ramped up earlier to give us several inches hanging on the trees.  My cameras were along in the front seat and I pulled one up and grabbed this shot.  Nothing earth shattering here, but it kind of gave me a feeling of what winter is like and all those miles travelled between home and one of my playgrounds in the county forest.  Maybe it's more of an impression of what I see and feel going back and forth.  I'd have to say, Columbia Road is one of my favorites.
