Yes I’m dreaming of last Winter. Thank God for pictures. This photo was taken by me of my friend as we were walking down the Gateway Trail in Mahtomedi, Minnesota. This trail is beautiful anytime of the year, but on this particular day it took my breath away. The gentle coat of snow on the trees and the blanket of snow on the ground seem to absorb all of the sounds of the world. It created a peace and quiet that was deafening. To only hear the breath of Mother Nature in my ears and the soft crunch of the snow under my horses feet was so comforting. The gentle sway and rhythmic motion of my horse takes all the stress of life away, and could put me to sleep, but then I would fall off and ruin the moment.
