An Early Morning Walk

The other morning I wanted to go out for a walk just as the sun was rising. Henry was happy to join me as we walked across the pasture to the fenceline. 

We crunched on the frosty grass and admired the snow up high. The snow on the mountains always makes them seem so much taller.

We disrupted a raven who had been hanging out on the fencepost. We heard many Canada geese flying off in the distance, along with some sandhill cranes and ducks. 

And then, off in the distance, I saw a small form. Henry stopped and sniffed the air. A coyote watched us, and then another one off in the distance started howling. It was so cool!

The coyote we were watching didn't seem to be bothered at all by us and eventually sauntered out of view. 

Meanwhile, Henry had fun running all over the meadow, letting his puppy energy loose. I think he likes going out on early morning walks as much as me!
