    Well I put one of GA in there too LOL! I am sorry the quality is low, I just didn't want to lock up the computers of those on dial-up. These are all from the past two years, but mostly last winter.

    Just to get it out of the way, me. I could totally be rocking some skis LOL!

    Ice tables! The ice was 3 feet thick last winter.

    A big nasty Forest Ant hill. Hubby says when guys get drunk in the Army, they dare each other to sit naked on those things and well..you can probably guess the rest LOL! (Hubby never took part lol)

    Great pixs. That is quiet an ant hill. I wouldn't want to encounter it.

    Some cold looking places there, plus some nice warmer looking ones.

    You will have to tell more about Finland, as that is one country that we didn't study much on when I was in school.

    Enjoyed the pics very much, and I am on dial up so thanks for being so thoughtful. Alot of times I don't bother with "Pic" threads because it takes so long to view.

    On another note, and don't mean to turn this into a thread drift.

    Your pic of the ant hill reminded me of a coversation with my mom last summer as we were walking one of our fence lines looking for mushrooms. We came across a large ant hill. She said remember where it is and if you happen to get a dead critter of some sort lay its body on the ant hill and come back after a couple of days. You'll have yourself a picked clean skeleton.

    Some may wonder at that. I'll just say that my mom has a shelf of interesting things to look at in her home...pretty rocks, interesting pieces of wood, arrow heads, and in a very ornate glass jar with a fancy lid she has a snake skeleton in there...it is a great conversation piece and I have sat and studied it many many times and have never become unimpressed with it.

    And with that, I'll return you to your regularly braodcast schedule....*grin*
