Winter at IslandWood

Hi friends,

Thankfully, the weather has warmed back up for our last teaching week this quarter! Winter certainly payed us all a visit a few weeks ago. It was freezing! The students and instructors were champions though (thank you gear volunteers) and it was exciting to see the landscape change so dramatically with the cold weather. The frost filled mornings and icy evenings were spectacular!

As the temperature probably won't dip down like that again for a while, I wanted to share some fun photos highlighting our winter wonderland experience!  

It snowed, and even stuck on the ground for a few hours! The understory was breathtaking with the white dusting.  

Mac's Pond froze over too! So much for the pond investigation and floating classroom.... But on the bright side, who knew that rocks made such an awesome sound skating across frozen ice?
