Christmas Eve walk in the snowy winter woods

SWAC Husband and SWAC Son check out the snowy back yard. SWAC Son and I grabbed our cameras and took a late Christmas Eve afternoon walk into the snowy woods behind the house. The snow was too deep to make our way up to the ridge.

The pond with the mountain ridge behind....

In the woods looking at mountain ridge behind the house.

The twinkly white lights were on as dusk settled in on the back yard. The woods beyond was where we had trekked earlier.

The pond has a thin layer of ice.

The woods are silent when covered by snow. As SWAC Son and I plowed our way through the deep snow (which made it difficult to walk), we saw bird, rabbit, and deer tracks.

The little white lights illuminated the back yard as dusk fell. We are having a White Christmas.
