Snake on the rocks, and other photos

I came home early to go jogging, but the cold weather made jogging seem miserable, so I went for a walk down to the river, where the ice is breaking up. The leaves are melting into the snow as their dark colors attract the heat of the sun. A garter snake had apparently slithered onto some thin ice, broken through and drowned. Reminded me of the canada goose I saw drown a year ago Thanksgiving. And I’m still waiting for the sun to set directly to the west, so it will hang red right over the end of the road.
