Sunday was a glorious day to be outside. I headed to the Methow Trails Community Trail and classic skied a few miles. Few others were out on the trail, maybe because the temperature was 9° F? It was incredibly beautiful – blue skies forever, powdery snow groomed to perfection, birds chirping their winter calls, and some white-tailed deer slowly walking the packed pathway. I crossed the suspension bridge and stopped in a (cold) warming hut to adjust my boots. The frosted windows framed a lovely view of the river.

Birds I heard, and saw, included Pileated Woodpecker, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Black-capped Chickadees, American Dipper (formerly known as a water ouzel) and Common Redpolls.

It was a fine morning.
