Chemung River, Stark and Cold

A bright Saturday morning beckoned Ellie and me. An hour and a half later we returned home exhausted. Winter walking is far more taxing than our gentle summer strolls, and the river did not soothe my soul, as it would in the summer. But stark and cold is also beautiful when taken in a small enough dose. Come to our last posting on Riverfest2005.

Note: (December 18, 2005) There was supposed to be a photo of our advent wreath with all candles lighted, but UPS failed us again. Our package has lain dead in Atlanta since Monday. Five days in Atlanta. Oh, well, maybe next year. Hope UPS can get it to us by then, but don't count on it. We won't.

This is an awesome photo, wonderful winter beauty. It does look like it would be a bit harder to walk than the summer version. Nice to look at the pic without feeling the cold, we are having a 70s day here for a change.
