Mom and I went for a walk at the Old Cedar Avenue Bridge last weekend. We went walking there in the fall, but we wanted to see how it would be in the winter. I tell you, it was very cold. The wind was blowing hard creating really big wind chills. Still, we managed to walk around for about half an hour. Can you see, I didn’t want to even sit in the snow by the time we took this photo.
At first our walk was pretty nice. There were only a few cars in the parking lot so we had the place mostly to ourselves. The trails are nicely packed snow which we like a lot.
We found a lot of big trees that were down. I think we always run into downed trees and I don’t know why. I enjoy climbing on them, so that is what I did for a photo.
Once we turned to walk the other direction, we got the real wind. Boy it was super duper cold. Mom’s hands were freezing and I didn’t really want to sit in the snow anymore at all! My behind was chilled.
We did find some interesting fungi on some downed trees. I guess fungus lives year round. The stuff we found was only on this one tree piece, but we like the look of it.
As a last stop on the way to the car, we had to get a photo of the bridge in the winter. Originally we planned to walk over it but with the heavy winds, we decided to get back in the car, and keep on driving to warm up. Maybe we will visit again on a warmer winter day.
