Here's my first posting of 2008 and I'm thinking about Spring! We've had a couple days of thawing temps and I'm longing for a stroll out in nature - no snow, no mud, no jacket. Warm sun on my BARE arms.
But it IS January, so a trip down memory lane will have to suffice for now.
I hiked with friends at Effigy Mounds National Monument in the Spring a couple years ago, which is when I took these shots.
