Snow Art

I recently read about a winter road being similar to a painter’s canvas.  Right after a snow, before any tracks are made the road is blank, like an unpainted piece of canvas.  Although I am not an artist I am always tempted while out where there is fresh snow to make my presence known.  Sometimes while snowshoeing I plop off of the trail to make a snow angel.  Other times while out snowmobiling I take off into the fresh snow and make a circle or a letter or a design.  It is such a beautiful sight to see untouched, fresh snow, but there is also something inviting and tempting about it as well.  I’m hoping for a fresh blanket of snow soon so I can get out and paint my own picture once again.
