I took my camera with me on our AM walk, but Dreyfus didn't do anything photogenic, so I decided to dedicate today's picture to this stick. I have been monitoring it for almost two weeks. The nearest tree is ~100 feet away, so how did the stick get to its resting place? The stick has been sinking a little bit each day, as it absorbs heat and slowly melts through the ice. By tomorrow morning, it will probably be down to the ground.

Dreyfus and I almost always walk the same route, but it's never really "the same." There is always something new to see.
