Finally! A Photo Essay about Winter in the Northeast

Winter has finally arrived! It’s better late than never (although I’m sure some of you would disagree). My master and I went up to the cabin this weekend and took a walk around the beaver dam. We scurried down the slope to check out the ice formations and walked the edge of the swamp. Here’s a bit of what we saw…

This is the beaver dam as the sun goes down behind the trees. The swamp is full of life, even in the winter.

This ice sculpture was nestled in the formations below the beaver dam. Like many things in life, you have to get up close to appreciate how complicated and intricate it is...

.

This little hollow cove of pillowy ice caught my eye when we jumped back up the slope to the swamp. It looks so soft, but it isn't.

.

These things do not taste good, and they do not go down well. Have water handy, or perhaps just don't eat them. They are called cattails, but they taste nothing like cats. I think it's just an elaborate joke on dogs.

.

I was denied the opportunity to eat these berries. (M. Night Shyamalan would be happy.) Humans named this plant well, as they are called Winterberry. For some reason, this particular one is always very berry-y.

.

Yes, I do indeed get more adorable every time you look at me.

.

This was probably the coolest ice formation we saw today. Not the coldest, though. That was a different one.

.

One more of me being cute... just for good measure.

    Nice photos! Was one of your parents a coonhound, by chance? Those ears and tail sure look like it.
