“Winter’s End on Seaton Trail

“Winter’s End on Seaton Trail”

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”
― Anne Bradstreet

After what started off as a gorgeous March, with above normal temperatures and bright sunshine, things changed mid-month, and we got into a cycle of cold days, snow flurries, and some freezing rain. This turned the nice dry trails back to a mix of mud and frozen puddles.

I’m happy to say, I think that phase is done, temperatures are returning to normal and the ice covered puddles are beginning to thaw and break up.

The photo above is of one such puddle, which caught my attention by how the angular ice pieces floated on the surface, while the water reflected the canopy of pine trees above. It seemed like a final goodbye to the winter of 2015 and a hello to the possibility of a nice summer of hiking these trails and enjoying the sights with dry feet.
