Beaver Pond in Winter

Beaver Pond in Winter

This pond is along the Larry Scott Trail south of Port Townsend, WA. There isn’t access to the shore of the pond … it’s all private property … so a shot through the trees is about all I could get. I’ve seen lots of water birds, an eagle perching on one of the overlooking trees, and some water critter that looked like a beaver or such. It was daytime, so the beaver answer is less than certain.

The image below was taken along this same stretch of the Larry Scott. It follows the old railroad grade and it drops off fairly sharply on either side along this section.

Road and Deer

Fort Worden Roadway

Walking the roads in Fort Worden, you can often find yourself sharing the roads with deer. In the image below, the young deer (a yearling) is experiencing its first snow. It’s mother is off the road to the right … the teen-fawn seemed a little uncertain about this cold white stuff. And I imaged it was wondering if mom was going to order out dinner.

Walk in the Snow

Tree and Bench

I walk often at Fort Worden St Park in Port Townsend. It’s a large park with lots of interesting photo subjects. But when it snows (not often in PT), the park changes and all the usual views are different. It all means that the usual scenes are new and dramatically different. Such as these two images.

Icicles on Douglas Fir

The sun on the Douglas Fir had melted some of the snow and as the temperature dropped, it froze into these lovely icicles. I was getting a little chilly by this time, or I might I spent more time with these.
