Arizona, books I'm reading again, outdoors

Stopping By The Woods

Stopping by the woods just after a snow storm here in Prescott proves to be breathtaking and worth the time invested to take a break and be reminded of its mystery and beauty.

Just look  in the woods and you can’t help but be amazed..

Tonight driving home I just had to take some pics of the woods the water and the winter.

Each Winter I think about Robert Frost famous “Stopping By The Woods On A Snowy Evening” poem.
If you know the poem you probably think about it’s amazing words whenever you see snow in the woods.

Stopping By The Woods by Robert Frost

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Granite Basin Recreation area just behind the house here in Prescott is an amazing playground of beauty and God’s art.

Here is a great youtube link if you would like to hear Stopping by the Woods.

Enjoy every season of your life.
