Picture of the week (Last real snow)

Filed under: Outdoors,Picture of the week — Tags: , — Marcus @ 2:00 am

So last Thursday we got hit with what Cleveland would consider a major snowfall, we got around 4-5 inches.  I am betting that this was the last real snowfall we will get this year, yeah, it might snow a bit here and there, but nothing that will really stick.

As I was driving home on Friday the trees still had a fair amount of snow sticking to them, so I decided to stop by the Chagrin River Park real quick on my way home to see how high the river was (I am itching to get my kayak out!).  As I got out of my car, I saw a group of deer down the one trail, so I followed them for a bit and got this picture.  You can’t really tell by the picture, but that is a pretty young deer, didn’t have spots, but it wasn’t much bigger than a big dog, it was running along side its mother (It actually looked like Madison when she is trotting along side me).

After I parted ways, I headed down to the river, and it looks like it would be a fun ride on my kayak, not quite yet though.  I don’t have a wetsuite or any other type of cold water gear, and I don’t think it would be smart to chance falling into the water without the proper gear, so I guess I will be waiting for a bit longer yet.

  1. What a pretty winter wonderland picture and the deer was just perfect added to the scenery.
    A bit of country, just as nice as the farm, huh?

  2. Nice picture… and with the i-phone no less. I’ve been trying to get a picture of about 12-15 turkeys I see almost every morning on my paper route. Zoom just won’t quite cut it on the iphone for that one. Nicely done.
