Frozen Meadow Trek

Photos from a winter walk at Mass Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary in Princeton, MA,

It was a chilly 22 degrees at Wachusett Meadow today.
The Beaver Lodge was coated in snow and surrounded by ice.
A light layer of ice on the snow in the South Meadow shone in the low winter light.
Bluebird houses, abandoned until the spring, are a familiar sight along numerous trails.
The cross country skiers and snowshoers who trekked before me made my hike a bit easier today.

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

  3. Wonderful winter photos. I especially like the beaver dam. Don’t usually see them that close.

    1. Love to watch the dam, because it attracts geese, otters and other critters, as well.

  5. These scenes are beautiful though I shudder at the cold. I have just converted the Fahrenheit temp to Celscius. Brr! We don’t get that cold here where I live in KwaZulu-Natal. I guess though with the right clothing one can adapt!

    1. Yes, we do get used to the cold here in New England. I keep all sorts of extra caps, mittens and such in my car “just in case”. ๐Ÿ˜‰
