Freezing River

The temperature was 15 below this morning and is now climbing its way toward a forecast high of 3.  The East Fork has thickened up nicely, though it's still flowing in little channels through the ice.  Tonight's temps should drop under 20 below, so it's just a matter of time before solid ice silences the river.  The silence is profound, after being accustomed to the sound of the river all year, to go out and hear nothing.

 A deer got a little impatient here and tried to walk across.

  1. So serene. But I can't wait to walk across it again. Ever wonder why there's never 4 hoof prints with a deer? Maybe they drag their feet like a reluctant child heading toward a bath.
