I’ve been aching for it, and last night we got some: snow!

It’s just a little bit for now and it’ll soon be gone, so this morning I made a long walk though the single inch of white stuff we had. Here are some pictures:

As you can see in this photo, the snow didn’t last long in the lower lying areas, which is why I drove straight up to Red Cliff after dropping Marije off at work in Logy Bay; Red Cliff (on Cobbler Path) is easily the highest peak near us.

On top of Red Cliff it was a true winter wonderland, everything was so white you may even have a hard time finding the trailhead I’m referring to in the title of this image. It’s really in there somewhere, if you don’t see it you may want to click the image to see a larger version.

On the trail the animal tracks were easily visible and all over the place, I saw moose, fox, bird and hare tracks. All pretty standard creatures around here, but it takes a bit of snow to make the tracks this obvious.

On top of Red Cliff, you’re so high up you can even see Cape Spear over Sugarloaf Head!
