Secrets In The Snow

The snow was falling hard and being whipped around pretty fiercely.  The temperature was in the mid-twenties and most would say it was the perfect Saturday morning to stay in bed and admire it through a frosty window.  But we haven't had much snow this winter and I didn't want to miss out on the crunch under my boots, frosted trees and buffeted solitude.   I knew where I was going.  It's where I always think to go when we're experiencing extreme weather, Lake View Cemetery.  This cemetery is the perfect canvas for riotous fall colors, bursting hills of daffodils or a blanket of fresh snow.  It always gives up new secrets in the way of history and architectural elements when you visit.  It's the perfect place to take pictures and to take a quiet moment of admiration.  It was cold, bitterly cold.  But I didn't want to miss the cemetery's latest collaboration with mother nature.  I stayed until my frozen fingers could no longer operate the camera.  I already anticipate the next visit and the next batch of secrets to be revealed.  A place not to be missed, especially in the snow.
