Rocks on the Ausable River



“If thou live according to nature, thou wilt never be poor; if according to the opinions of the world, thou wilt never be rich.”

-Seneca quotes (Roman philosopher, mid-1st century AD)

Pretty picture. Almost reminds me of iced cinnamon rolls!!! Nalley loves rocks and has plenty to see down at our creek but we never get to see them covered in snow. Thank you for sharing with us today.

Think about the life that will be crawling about under and between those rocks in months to come when summer arrives! I also like the thought Mildred has about iced cinnamon rolls! A nice shot of the river bank.

Great Photo Shelley. JJ and Yourself really know how to capture a scene. I would have never thought of photographing rocks...but you captured them so peacefully! :) O and the road is NOT plowed out to inspiriation point...mt.man and I took peanut for a drive today...definatly will have to wait until spring....but still a good area to check out elk when the snow is gone!

Beautiful photo...I agree with Mildred, they remind me of iced cinnamon rolls! The snow surely makes anything old and true, new again!

Mildred - I love the cinnamon roll description! You're making me hungry now! lol!

Cedar - You are so right - I can't wait to head back during the spring!

Darla - Thank you!

Shannon - thank you! The weather was perfect on this day!

Busy Bee - thank you! Wasn't sure if the quote was too old fashioned - lol!

nature lovin - thank you! Also for the elk info! I'm determined to get good pics of them sometime this year! (Hopefully not of one charging me in the field - lol!)

Spooky - the snow definitely adds the oomph. But I am looking forward to some greenery as I've been struck w/ spring fever!

Benny & Patsy - I ask myself the same question - lol!

Hi Judy - me too - I appreciate what is revealed to me each day I go exploring.

Betsy - 20s is very cold for you guys! Stay bundled and warm!!

Hi Michele - thank you! I thought they looked like they were stacked in such a nice arrangement.

Ashly - glad you liked it!
