Grant, Minnesota

Overnight, a gentle mist of snow fell in Grant, Minnesota lightly touching the trees with a white and fluffy powder.  The branches welcomed the mist and a peaceful scene was created.

The deer came out to enjoy the magical quietness that filled the air.

The roads that lead to homes were yet unused as the residents inside them enjoyed a warm fireplace oblivious to the scene outside.

Whimsical settings are left by residents for those passing by to enjoy.

This last picture is one I took while driving through Grant looking for a house that was for sale.  The poem below reflects my thoughts as I looked at the quietness that enveloped my senses.
“It is not so much for its beauty that the forest 
makes a claim upon men’s hearts,
as for that subtle something, that quality of air 
that emanate from old trees,
that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.”  
Robert Louis Stevenson
