Around this time every year, I start to reach my fill of winter. The cold is no longer cozy; the snow is no longer magical. So I thought this month, I’d live a bit vicariously and share photos that represent what I’m eagerly awaiting with warmer temperatures.
A few years ago, we went on a trip to South Dakota. Above is a relatively common sight at Custer State Park: a traffic jam caused by wandering buffalo. Most of the time, I try to come up with something introspective or thoughtful when I post a picture. But honestly… I think this picture is just too cool to be weighed down by any sort of abstract thinking. It speaks for itself: A bit of nature forcing us to slow down and appreciate the moment.
