But today the best thing was that unplanned activity. We actually had a winter day starting with sunshine and an unusually 50 degree balmy day. Natureman suggested a nearby trail walk. Perfect.
Due to the meltdown our driveway had started its own stream as the surrounding hills's snow seemed to have pretty much melted and I was wondering if I would need waders.
Coon Creek was really moving with its waters at bank level. The trail fortunately was unusually clear with just a couple of north facing sides with some melting ice.
It's a good thing we took the walk today because any later we might have missed this year's cliff ice cascades.
It was a gorgeous day to be outside.
If you have to have a Monday meltdown, this is definitely the kind to have.
