“I hide myself in the quiet white of winter and

nestle in her comforting folds of cold oblivion.”

–Terri Guillemets

Red twig dogwood branches contrast with shades of tan, walnut, and gray in the winter wetland vegetation. The absolute silence is welcoming and comforting. Winter hiking has its own unique pleasure.

Wildlife leave evidence of their activity in the slushy snow.  It was quiet on the trail, except for a few birds flitting away, as I walked by a feeder near the building. The absence of snakes makes winter hiking especially appealing.

The Horicon Marsh has alluring beauty in every season. Solitude and stillness captivate in winter.
