Just a beautiful New Year's Day in Rhode Island today. About 7 inches of new powder on the ground and crystal blue skies above. Here are a few photos from a morning snowshoe on our regular daily walk trail.

Jake says - "Are you coming or what?"

Nice pictures. Too cold to do much outside here in Maine. I will go over to my son's place for food and football games though.

Nice pictures, looks like a nice trail to do every day. I wish I had something like that here in NJ. Jake looks cute, I bet he's really cuddly.:)

We're very lucky to have the trail connected to our neighborhood and be able to get time in the woods every day (and Jake is happy to be able to be off the leash). Yes, Jake is definitely a big cuddly puppy (well, a 10 yr old puppy anyway) who thinks he's a 100lb lap dog...

This is in Frenchtown Park behind the East Greenwich Rec Center. The middle of the trail goes through an easement at the end of our neighborhood so we've got a couple of nice accessible loops. There are several miles of blazed trails including a loop through a nature preserve. Here's some additional info: http://riroads.com/outdoors/frenchtown_park.htm

Is that squirrel praying for more food?

I think it's the birds that need to do the praying - that the squirrels leave some for them :rolleyes:
