Winter in WNY

Ahh, perfect day to get to the woods. This trail is called the Swallow Hollow Trail and is part of the Iroquois Wildlife Refuge.

Honestly, I only walk this trail in the winter. Part of the 1.3 mile trail is covered with gravel and that crunch crunch crunch is all you hear! But in the winter -- ahh, heaven -- quiet and peaceful. Just the way I like it.

At one point in the trail is a most beautiful grove of pine trees. My favorite part to wander around in. Magnificent. Pete just couldn't help but climb to the top of a fallen tree. He likes to get my heart pounding :)
