Wilton’s Centennial Park is less than 10 years old. Once a wasteland breeding ground for mosquitoes, the slough was transformed in to a flowing stream pond with a pony truss bridge and elegant light poles.  It’s not easy getting to in the winter, the trail is not open, but if you have cross country skis or are just willing to tromp through the thigh-deep snow, you can visit the bridge. These cold, yet serenely warm photos are some of my favorites of the winter, so far. Sitting alone, undisturbed in the setting sun, the benches remind me of how isolated North Dakota can be in the winter.  But the sparkling clean air and falling flakes of frost from nearby trees add a sparkle to the scene.
