Scenes from a Snowy Coulon Walk

We were housebound for three days but when the roads became passable, we decided to go for a walk at Gene Coulon Park. We bundled up and trudged around the lake mostly alone. The stony walkers were dressed in their holiday finest and my… Continue Reading “Scenes from a Snowy Coulon Walk”
