While most people were complaining about a recent April snowfall, I went out early in the morning to make the most of it. This is the Francis C. Carter Memorial Preserve in Charlestown, RI. I hike here often because it’s an easy drive from where we live.
There had been some freezing rain, coating the branches just enough so they sparkled in the sun.
Here’s a closer view of those branches.
The sky was still clearing, and the clouds were worth a good, long look.
We followed the trail that leads to an open field. Ours were the only tracks in the snow.
My dog found some mouse tracks and had a good roll in them. This photo leads me to concur with other corgi owners when they say their dogs resemble loaves of bread. It’s true.
Beautiful photos as usual, beautiful dog, how long is trail there? Have been meaning to check it out. Hoping for Spring here, GP
The trail to the field takes less than an hour if you walk around the field itself. The trails in the woods meander for miles. We are usually in there for at least 2 hours.
