WordPress Photo Challenge: Abstract
I stopped this morning to admire the abstract patterns in this rock wall next to the trail. When I got back home, I decided to skim through previous photos from the Ozarks region that have an abstract quality about them. I chose to focus on photos with rock, water, and ice.

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!
