The Wild Frozen North

  1. There is nothing so beautiful as a snow covered landscape. I am so glad that we have had some snow this year. Hiking in snow can fill the soul with wonder and awe. Thank you for sharing your photos.

  2. I know mine is an unpopular opinion, here in the US’s Northeast, but I miss the snow. Each time we get a deluge of rain that would — in my youth — have added to winter’s accumulation of snow, I feel the pang of regret. I enjoyed seeing your landscape. 🙂

    1. Hi Ana,
      Just read your poem! Fantastic! This is backcountry Minnesota actually. I took these photos up in Voyageurs National Park, MN. Glad you enjoyed the post! Tom

  3. I had to smile at this: ““A vast silence reigned over the land. The land itself was a desolation, lifeless, without movement, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was not even that of sadness…”

    Houston hardly is the wild frozen north, and (presumably) we’ll never approach the wild beauty of your photos, but during this past week, when a coating of ice and temperatures dipping into the teens brought life to a standstill for a few days, and lowered even Gulf waters into the 40s, those words could have applied. I enjoyed this.
