Snowy Day at the Sourland Mountain Preserve

I went for a walk at the local Sourland Mountain Preserve. It was snowing, a late winter storm. The long winding road is the right-of-way for a cross country high-pressure gas line. The other images are of cattails, a pair of Mallard ducks swimming in a pond, and tree bark coated with snow. Images from 4 years ago today.
