First Snow at Birch Lodge

Birch Lodge, Trout Lake, MI
We woke up this morning to our first snow.  It got down to 26 degrees, and as I walked out the door, the frozen leaves crunched beneath my feet.  We will be closing for the season at the end of October, and this snow made me realize how soon  winter will be here.  But there  is always  something special about the first snow....so I took a few shots to share.  

There was a skim of snow on the fire pit, which had a fire ablaze only two nights before, with guests enjoying the night sky..

Boats, Birch Lodge, Trout Lake, MI
The boats too, have been pulled out of the water, and looked ready for the winter.

I walked on down toward the beach, admiring the frosting of snow on the maple leaves.

 Someone once said you know you live in the U.P. when you have to shovel your lawn before you can rake it.  Too true!

My feet were beginning to get cold and wet by the time I made it down to the beach.  The snow here made interesting patterns on the sand.
It made me think of a dusting of powdered sugar.  Which reminded me of the gingerbread I had made yesterday........ My Great-aunt Hannah's recipe, and an old family favorite. I made some coffee and we feasted on our treat.  Now there is....those who loathe puns stop here...
'S no more gingerbread!
