Making tracks

December 17, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

OK, I didn't quite get my scheduling right. Turns out there was another storm that appeared right on the heels of Chloe, and Winter Storm Dylan actually brought some genuine snow, perhaps as much as a couple of inches of powder. Turns out I actually photographed post-gale. There was more than enough of the white stuff to cross-country ski on, but, since I haven't been cleared to undertake that activity, I instead put on heavily-insulated boots and followed some of the backwoods trails to see if I could spot any tracks. There was plenty of action overnight and in the early morning. These were made by mice, and the shot, greatly enlarged, shows dragging feet and even a small hole, perhaps the entrance to a mouse tunnel. (The rodents stay warm by tunneling under the snow.)
