Between November 15 and March 15, many of the riverway access points and trails are closed to provide a barrier for the American Bald Eagles that roost in our area. The VFW park in Prairie du Sac is one of the only spots that is always open. Like, last week when X and I stopped by to snap some shots of the amazing ice that ebbs and tides there, we couldn't because of the TWENTY FISHERMEN UNLOADING THEIR BOATS. (Instead, here's a different VFW park ice photo from some years back. Here's another.)
Yesterday, the whole family jumped a snowbank and we followed our own trails near August Derleth park. We skip the (snow-covered) paved paths, and we follow those of other animals and explorers. Or, we make our own.
I brought along the dreamy Diana toy lens. We've been fast friends.
