Spring Equinox 2016 Photo Essay

By Jelane A. Kennedy

It has been an odd winter this year. The last two winters have been full of snow and biting temperatures, but this year we saw less snow and milder temperatures. I for one thought we would end up seeing a lot of ice, but though we have had some ice it has not been nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I have missed the snow this year, we only went snowshoeing once. I missed the bright white that offsets what can be cloudy gloomy days.

In the days after winter solstice, we went on a delightful hike and followed this the same on new year’s day. Little did we know that most of our winter  hikes would be without snow.

At this point I am ready for Spring!

Below you will find photos from the last few months as reminders of the time between winter solstice and spring equinox – enjoy!

    Great photos! And as I sit waiting for a nor’easter on the first day of spring (and my birthday!) I’m feeling so ready for it all to pass.
