Presidents' Day Weekend

A thousand hills. Flying birds vanish.
Ten thousand paths. Human traces erased.
One rod, bark cape – an old man
alone, angling in the cold river. Snow.

               - Adapted from Liu Zongyuan

Sometimes forget how day-saving streamers can be.  In a word, it's pretty easy fishing.

Skiing the pools at the bottom of a Driftless River.

Water comes from the rock.  There was an active snapping turtle in this spring pool.  February. 

Aggressive sledding.  Powder on ice.  Steep slope.

Beautiful man. Glad to see that your weekend intentions were indeed realized. I am so verdantly jealous over your proximity to open water and wintertime trout, but very appreciative of your gracious willingness to share it.

Active snapping turtle in February! Crazy!

Looks like lots of great activity.

As in previous posts, I found myself curious who the canine friend is.

Good notes. You all remind me to even further appreciate the landscape we have at hand here.

The dog is bound to a friend with whom we were skiing that day; no canine for us at this point; maybe another time down the road!
