It's a very sudden and early thaw here in Mount Horeb. I'm still too injured to go train at any of the gyms where I usually find myself on a Monday. After weeks of not getting any better I am finally admitting I need to see my Doctor. So after making an appointment for later this morning I took a casual stroll into the nearby park. The quick thaw has left all the fields flattened and easy to navigate. There is a foundation from an old, small barn that I usually visit each year after the thaw. Someday I may have to try and get a grant to build a semi-permanent bird-blind here. It'd be an excellent spot to document small prairie birds.
