Menomonee River, early morning January

I had an appointment that took me along the Menomonee River Parkway early this morning, and as the sight of morning winter sunlight on the snow beside the river is one rarely glimpsed in the normal course of my daily and weekly routine, I made a quick stop to take a few photos.

    Ah it is nice to see the sun today. Too long since it last graced us with its presence. We take the Parkway a lot and enjoy the little get way from the noise and traffic. We should treasure our green space in Milwaukee. Happy New Year, Katie.
