A few days ago, March 1st, Debbie and I woke up with snow in our back yard.
The snow covers our summer dining table.
Of course there was snow out our front window too.
Here's the front of our house with snow on the steps and Bob the wild cat's tracks along the window.
We go for a short walk through a forest and meadow and stop to view our little brick house over the picket fence.
It's so pleasant! We head out along the Base Trail for Pilot Butte a quarter mile away.
The tracks of a hopping rabbit lead the way along the invisible trail.
In five minutes walk we join the paved road leading to the summit. The view is down Greenwood Avenue toward downtown Bend.
It is serene but several people have preceded us up and down the Pilot Butte road.
We reach the alternate trail. It is so beautiful but we have a party to attend and head home.
Retirement isn’t for lazy people, there’s too much to do.
