Today's also the 12th - the day we have fun snapping pictures of the day as we participate in Chad Darnell's 12-of-12. So, off we go to our favorite place - the Erie County Forestry - for a nice hike. It was 40-degrees today and a little rainy, but that didn't stop us.
First, we make our way to the top of the hill...

This next shot is a repeat from a previous 12-of-12; October 2009
Believe it or not, some trees still have their leaves
So peaceful... we had the woods all to ourselves.
Now we're home... snugged up inside with a nice fire and mug of tea...
A View from the Porch:
The start of December brought our first significant snowfall of the year. Since then, it's snowed on-and-off, leaving us with almost a foot of snow. You wouldn't know it today, however. The rain and temps in the 40s has made everything a soggy, melty mess.
|You can even see "steam" rising from the snow in this shot.|
So, that's the end of the 12-of-12 for 2010. I am happy to say I was able to participate every month this year! I'm also happy that Chad is going to continue the 12-of-12 tradition at least another year.
All the best for a happy & healthy holiday season.
See you next year!
