12/24/11 Sklar Park

Cold- 12 degrees with a wind chill of 1 but mostly sunny. Wanted something somewhat sheltered so we went to Sklar Park which is primarily woods. The cold had saved the snow we got yesterday so it was still quite pretty. We parked at the Boy Scout office and walked the trail to Dirigo Pines. We then did some side trails but I can't say for sure which as the system is confusing to me. There are markers at some junctions but also trails not on the map ( some just lead to back yards) . After a bit we warmed up and spent a pleasant hour and a half.

I don't know the identity of these tiny plants.

I had ice in my beard too


  1. I'm stumped also on the tiny plants. Nice shot of Kelley.

  2. Thanks for commenting John. They are only about an 1/8 of an inch across and probably wouldn't be noticed without the snow. I Like the Kelley picture too- I also had ice in my beard.
