Today is May Day, a day of spring celebrations and a focus on flowers in the Northern Hemisphere. Not here. Not this year.
This was the view from our bedroom this morning - snow, snow, snow! That's the elk antler that Shyla found a couple of years ago.
The falling snow has slowed down so I actually enjoyed my snowbike ride today. Yesterday was pretty miserable. I got cold and damp early in the ride, and my body never fought off the chill. In contrast, today I followed the time-honored rules of winter - don't let your fingers stay uncovered for too long, don't stop for more than 5 minutes, and work hard - and I stayed warm for a good ride.
Snow never gets old for Shyla. Her joy helps my state of mind!
I think that the snow does get old for the wildlife. This bobcat walked intricate routes to avoid expending extra energy by walking on snow (this photo was taken before this round of snow). The good news for me was that his intricate routes took him very close to a trail camera!
Inside the house, we are pretending that it's springtime with some glorious flowers brought home by the Runner.
Happy May Day!
