This Week at the Lake – 42/52

Merry Christmas everyone!

Only 10 weeks remaining, on the down hill slope now! I was off of work all week this week staying at home with the family. I was, however, able to sneak out one morning and head to the lake. Wednesday I got up early and was on the trails by 6:15 or so. The sunrise wasn’t much because of some heavy clouds so I just headed on down the trail.

I decided to take the Ganier Ridge trail since I had the time and have only been on that trail once.

On the way, I spotted Rudolph!

Because of the overcast conditions, I had to get creative with some processing. I added texture layers and tones to the next couple of photos:

The hike up the Ganier ridge is tougher than the lake trail, but once up there it’s very peaceful.
Part of me wanted to sit and enjoy the quiet, part of me wanted to lay down and take a nap, and part of me wanted to keep on hiking!

Toward the end of the hike, I found a Barred Owl doing his best turkey impression!

It took nearly 15 minutes, but he finally turned around and gave me a look:

And that’s it for the week!

Thanks for looking!
