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.
When we got home, we made a fire to warm the cabin, put some nice, quiet music on the stereo, and enjoyed a late breakfast. Not a bad way to begin the winter season!
