A Frosty Morning in the Deep Woods

Frost on this blackberry bush gives it an impressionistic feel and look.
Frost before the sun.
It was a beautiful, frosty morning that greeted me today as I set out to hike in the deep woods of Botetourt County.

The first step was taken at 31 degrees, but the temperature rose as the sun soaked and by the end of the hike, I had removed my stocking cap and gloves and unzipped my coat to let the sun it.

Invigorating, I think, is the word. And beautiful. There's something clean and fresh about a cold hike.

Jack Frost walked here and sprinkled his stuff.

Ice, plain and simple.
