Season’s First Snow on the Homestead: Photos of Snow on the Creek

By , November 1, 2009

Last night, after Aly finished trick-or-treating, and we’d all settled to bed at our friends’ cabin in Haines, snow fell. Their kerosene heater’s on the blink, so we had to snuggle close, and had a pretty cold night. This morning a line of ermine tracks crossed their front porch.

Hiking across the creek before the morning high tide today, we saw where snow had accumulated on the creek surface, then flowed toward the bay mouth, wrinkling as it went.
