The Walpole Town Forest in Walpole, Mass. looks beautiful at any time of the year but there are times when it transforms into something purely magical.

Case-in-point: When a gentle, undisturbed snow graces the 365-acre forest, depositing a picturesque New England coat of white on mature trees and bushes as well as newly-born icy sections of the Neponset River.

The scenic body of water reflects the canvassed skies and landscape in otherworldly ways -- only, this is all real. Much like snowflakes, none of these scenes are ever alike so the key is to enjoy them in their blessed, given moments.

When looking at the Walpole Town Forest all dressed up in gleaming winter attire, it's almost like God empowered Mother Nature to create her most beautiful painting.

As the sun came out on this memorable morning, the scene burst with even more pop and came into full being. Let there be light and our world shines!

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, and it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness (Genesis 1:3 from the Book of Genesis)

I could look at this scene all day at the Walpole Town Forest. It is comforting to the soul in a way that cannot be fully described but only experienced.

You can access the Walpole Town Forest (only 18 miles from Boston!) at the 221 South St. parking lot in Walpole, MA.
