Exploring Woods

 Winter is my best time to go and wander in the woods because the snow (being a great acoustic absorber) makes it really quiet. This is especially true here in the Fairbanks area because even light wind is rare, so the snow stays up in the trees for weeks. Here are some pictures from the woods around the Fairbanks area.....

These are both of the woods at my house near Fairbanks: on a nice winter day in November 2008:



Here is the view down my driveway and toward the afternoon winter Sun . . .
