April 14 and the first day walking in hiking boots instead of winter Sorels and snowshoes. It's been a VERY long winter and there is still a lot of snow on the ground. It was a great day out at the park walking along the packed ski trails. Here's some artsy photos - when the predominant colour is grey/white/black, then you really notice the textures.
I don't remember the lake ever being frozen this late in the spring.
One bright spot of colour - the picnic table still buried under snow.
And a whole village of shelf mushrooms marching up the tree trunk!!
