A Winter Morning at Jenkins Arboretum

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

This morning I awoke to a winter wonderland at my house after the largest storm of the year.  Very heavy and wet, it was the best possible snow for photographs.  After looking around my own yard I went to Jenkins Arboretum, less than five minutes from home.  It is a wonderland any time of the year and gives me renewed energy every time I go. Jenkins is a protected watershed flowing into Trout Creek, the Schuylkill River  and eventually the Delaware River.   It is open to the public without charge every day.  Today I spent almost four hours wandering the paths and enjoying the beauty of snow, woods and sunlight.  Here is a selection of images from my morning.
