Mill Timber Creek along Highway 221 was partially frozen in the 16 degree temperatures. Recent snows were still in the shadows and along the bank.

If you were wondering about the evergreens I brought back, here is great specimen of Balsam Spruce, already in water on my kitchen table. It will last for three months.
