Winter Solstice 2011
An annual event for me is observance of the winter solstice on Frank’s Hill near Muscoda in southern
This year, over thirty people of all ages, faiths and walks of life gathered at Frank’s Hill and were treated to a spectacular sunset followed by fellowship around the warming fire. Landowner
Depending on who’s calendar you use, the date of the solstice can be either December 21, 22 or even 23. I grew up using December 21st as the official first day of winter and still default to that date. Close enough for rock n roll. However, the fresh blanket of snow lured me out of the office for a quick sojourn to the bottoms to take some pictures on Dec. 22nd. Despite gray skies, the woods and marshes were beautiful. Not another soul around and no other tracks in the snow. Solitude. Enjoy the following images from my trip to the Fish Trap Flowage. My wish for year in the new year is peace and happiness.
