Finding Magic in Evergreen Park

Evergreen Park is a small 20 acre park in my town. It is not a destination that most people would be hungry to visit. Last week-end (March 22-23, 2014), I was able to walk in places I had never been because the snow was so compacted (All winter long, if I took one step off the trail, I’d be up to knees in snow).  It was a very freeing experience and I found a deep wildness off the trail that had a sense of magic.

Can you find the little critters in this ice that had melted and refroze.
