Winter Beauty on the Trail

I love hiking the Ozarks in winter!  No bugs, no sweat, and great views.  Add a little water, and you have the recipe for beauty!   These photos were taken this morning between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m. The temperature was 17-degrees at the beginning of the hike and warmed up to 24 by the end.

Hiker is a winter dog!  She snuggles up in her straw bed inside her little house, but is ready to hit the trail regardless of temperature.  She got a little impatient at this creek while I was taking photos.  She was ready to move on down the trail!
