After Church my daughter Lottie and her three boys and my son's boy came over and we went for a hike over at Gunlock Lake. We didn't expect it to be so cold, but after walking for awhile we warmed up.
The boys (Trestan and Alex) kept throwing rocks at the water which was frozen. It took throwing a boulder they both lifted up together to get it to break the ice. You can see where people have thrown rocks. When the water melts they will all disappear to the bottom.
Tiah walked on the ice a bit, which I was not happy about at all. She finally broke through, luckily close to the shore, but couldn't get herself out. Luckily the boys were able to yank her out by her collar. She didn't go back, she learned a tough lesson. Scared me to death.
You can tell where the water is frozen and where it's not. Water is lower than I've ever seen it. Hopefully with more rain and run off from the mountains in the spring it will fill back up.
We had a flock of geese fly over us. We heard a gunshot boom, and the geese got real quiet for a moment then they started honking again. Luckily we didn't see anyone of them fall from the sky. Damn hunters.
It didn't even dawn on us that there would be snow. It's only 6 miles from my house.
Saw this rock formation in the distance and was able to zoom into it. Cool looking!
Reminds me of the tree of life. Beautiful!
My daughter Lottie.
My beautiful little girl. She had a ball hiking around. She hasn't left the couch since we got home. She has her head on my lap right now. Tuckered out....
