NOV 26, 20 (PART 4 of 4) .. REAL WINTER 2020-21 IN ANCHORAGE

 One of our favorite activities during the warm Summer and Autumn months is to take a short (20-minutes each way) walk to Hillstrand Pond located adjacent to our subdivision.

On August 11th, 23rd and 31st, I did a three part series of Posts showing Hillstrand Pond.

Just in case you want to review what Hillstrand Pond looks like in the Summer you can click onto the below link.

Below are several 'memory joggers' showing Hillstrand Pond in the Summer followed by some Winter views. 



The SNOW has arrived. Our temperatures have varied from 3
°F up to 32°F. 









The Bridge at Hillstrand Pond.



It no longer looks as you see it above.








When you cross the Bridge, ahead of you is the picnic table that we enjoy sitting at in the warm weather.



Oh My .. Oh My .. Mister Picnic Table. What has happened to your nice weather?




HILLSTRAND POND 

During the warm weather.


We have lived here for some thirty plus years. Odd but we did not know if the ducks 'winter over' here or migrated South.


Winter has arrived.




To be honest, I could not believe my eyes when I saw the below scene unfold before me.











We plan to head South to Arizona this upcoming December the 5th and remain there into April. So we will not have first-hand knowledge as to whether the ducks will remain all winter or go elsewhere, migrate or remain here in the greater Anchorage area.

We have so much to be Thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day 2020. We hope this is the case for each and everyone of you as well.

One person CAN indeed make a difference in our lives. Five days ago our friend Kleiner Bär (in German this means small bear) simply asked me where Part 2 was. Thanks so very much for getting me fired up again. Kleiner Bär's husband is Grosser Bär (LARGE bear). We go back some forty five years ago when we met in West Germany.
