As the snow diminishes slowly Spring is still afraid to join the world here. It looks so nice but is 15F of -9.4C. It is cold!!!!!!
The thorns of a Honey Locust were used as a fishhook. On a recent hike with the scouts I had to unhook a boy when he walked into this. He was just trying to pull lose, and they don't let go very good.
The Loess Hills is a spectacular area to explore. I know two of you who live close to them and would love to get together for a hike. Everyone else is always welcome to join! This geological wonder is only present in western Iowa and some place in China.
As the sun slowly sets I think back at enjoying a wonderful day out in the bitter cold. I have drank at least six cups of coffee today to warm up. I told one lady at the café I was goijng to pour a bit in my pockets to stay warm, and she just shook her head at my silly humor. LOL
