Mom and I found icebergs in the Minnehaha Creek on our walk last weekend! It was the day after we had snow, sleet, rain, and more snow. The trails were icy but Mom wore her Icebugs, and I stayed off road a lot to keep my grip. At least with the ice situation, not too many people were out and about. We like having our walking spots to ourselves. My sisters were on a different part of the creek in November before there was any snow and ice at all.
There were a lot of really big trees that had fallen over, some we think a long time ago. I enjoyed climbing on them and sniffing for squirrels. Being such big tree trunks, balancing was a piece of cake!
See the icebergs in the Minnehaha Creek behind me? I guess they are not true icebergs, but it is about all you will get on a small creek.
The woods was quite peaceful with the exception of one squirrel. Leave it to a tree rat to throw a wrench in a girl’s walk! There is no photo of him, but he stalked us and would suddenly race by and up a tree, disappear, and repeat.
Can you see the icy build up on the bridge? Mom thought I might have issues making it up and over as my nails are always kept short, but I managed just fine. Her Icebugs kept her going like there was nothing on the bridge at all. From a distance, we saw one guy holding on for dear life trying to navigate the ice. That would not be fun.
Finally a last look at our version of the icebergs in the Minnehaha Creek. It’s always fun to walk along the creek, and see it in different types of weather. Actually, we just love to get out and explore anywhere we can find. Happy Weekend, everyone!
