A few tufts of prairie grass still peak through mounds of new fallen snow. A warm water spring feeds a small stream that meanders through the hilly country side. I walked about a mile down this dirt road one January evening and relished the idea that no one could pass that way except on foot. Indeed no one had. There is something extraordinarily beautiful about a snowy landscape that has not been marred by human activity.

    I agree with you totally about the invasion of people & traffic.
    Certainly can destroy capturing nature at its finest !!
    What a beautiful capture, we don’t have any warm spring fed springs up here. When it’s froze that’s it for the winter, LOL!
