Day two of the cold snap. It's one of those bright, clear days when you want either to get up high, or--if you're stuck in the middle of a pancake-flat island without access to a tall building--find an open space. Why? To look at the north shore mountains.
I take the trail between the blueberry fields and find a gap in the birches.
Red-tailed hawk and Grouse Mountain. The shaved areas are ski hills.
Bonus: There are always eagles around at this time of year. On bright December days they do doughnuts above houses, shopping malls, school yards, everything. Look up, kids!
