Earlier in the week, I read that the sun would break out after days and days and days of fog and cloud. The hoar frost is beautiful, but we want our sunshine back! So off we went - me and my friend and our children - on a morning sunrise hike.
Sunrise time was 9:15 am. There it began! Fire broke through the last of the low clouds.
Then all across the land, things began to GLOW with golden sunshine. Everything came alive!
WELCOME BACK DEAR SUNSHINE! You are my favourite thing about winters on the Prairie.
I love the snowberries along the path. Everything began to sparkle. It always amazes me how the hoar frost piles up on the sunny side of things. I think winter is the most beautiful, magical season ever.
I am so grateful we headed out. What a pile of beautiful Winter Solstice photos I have now! It was one day late, but we had no sunrise to see on Monday.
The children all had so much fun. We had so much fun. It was warm out, there was no wind. We saw seven deer, and listened to a pack of coyotes singing from across the river.
Happy Winter Holidays folks, and Merry Christmas! Have a beautiful week. : )
