Hello 2017!

After the hustle and bustle of Christmas, we spent the days around the New Year holiday quietly with friends.

One of our favorite things to do with them is to go on walks and hikes. On New Year's Eve, we woke up to fog so we decided to head up to a higher altitude in search of some sun. We settled on Zugerberg,  where we'd be above the fog and have views of the surrounding mountains. At the moment there is little to no snow in the mountains here and everything is brown and dry. Zugerberg would be a nice place to go cross country skiing once the snow comes. But as we have had a lot of fog and low temperatures there is a quite a bit of hoarfrost.

After brunch on New Year's Day, we headed out to the fields behind the house for a walk in the sun. The frost beneath our feet crunched as we walked the back roads.


Wishing all a happy, healthy and peaceful 2017!

Brrrrrrrrrrr! That is truly the most beautiful winter wonderland ever! Even without snow, it's spectacular! They ice in the trees and on the ground is something we never get to see here and it's gorgeous! A perfect way to celebrate your birthday and the arrival of the new year! May 2017 bring you more amazing adventures and good health and much happiness! Lots of love, Auntie G

I absolutely love your photos of the hoarfrost. It creates such an ethereal landscape. Walking through it must be an amazing experience. Hoarfrost is something we never see here in California. What a great start to the new year. Happy 2017!

Hope you were bundled up! But the hoarfrost on the leaves is beautiful and the road looks so inviting. Glad your birthday and New Year were happy--good start to a year of happiness.
