You need to watch your step while hiking around here...

This trail, really a woods road, seems a pleasant place to stroll, but the thick ice on it this day was really slick, making for difficult even treacherous walking. We mostly stayed well to the side, or even into the adjacent woods most of the time.

Yeah, be careful! That's how I destroyed my shoulder--which has had a serious impact on my photography (among other things.)

Your dignity, perhaps? At my age, a fall is the greatest threat to my health and all that I enjoy doing. Having symmetrical hip replacements increases the risk, both of a fall and negative consequences. We always wear microspikes if there's any chance of ice, I often take a walking stick as well, and we avoid certain patches of ice even when wearing the spikes. I have gone down a few times because of ice, mostly stuff that couldn't be seen because of a fresh snow cover. One "memorable" time was out in an open field, used for football/soccer/softball. Fresh dry powdery snow atop a huge refrozen puddle that was smooth as glass. Almost impossible to get standing again, in fact, I had to crawl for a while. It was like being on a basketball court that was covered with marbles.

Feh, my dignity has been in tatters for ages. It's the gardening and fishing.

Fungi from last year. I think these survive the Winter and will start growing again.

Speaking of fungi from last year, I've never seen one like this in this shape at this time of year before.

It went down to -27 C last night, what the heck is going on here? I am so tired of snow.
K-3 and DA 18-135.

Ah, yes--an unwelcome sign of spring. Nice shot--I expect I'll start itching soon.
