Crow’s Nest Winter Scenes

January 22, 2015

By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager


While reviewing photos documenting last year’s conservation easement monitoring I have been struck by how last winter, everything was snow free in early January, until suddenly, it wasn’t. The next couple months of easement photos were all white. So I have been appreciating the easy access of snow-free days so far this year, and the time saved that is not spent shoveling or plowing.


Today’s snow was pretty but didn’t last. It did briefly change how the preserve looks.


This stone wall isn’t normally visible until it gets a dusting of snow on it.


Not all is black and white in the landscape. The Jersey steers have a fuzzy red coat that lets them laugh at the snow.
