This weekend we took advantage of the "warmer" weather (everything's relative, right?) to go for a hike in The Hollows. It was a beautiful walk through the woods and past the frozen marsh.
We saw lots of animal tracks, but the only wildlife we saw were birds. We happened upon some old foundations in the woods. I don't remember these from past trips to The Hollows, but it was a fun find. It's neat to see a piece of history and imagine the settlers who once called it home.
The fresh air was wonderful and it is a sweet winter memory.
