more tracks

Photobucket

We had another snowfall over the weekend...enough to bring the shovel out. It sure was pretty.

The sun came out the next day and the melt, which has already started, continues to send water from the mountain top down to the river valley.

The sound of it is wonderful, the change of the season is certain now. Winter is slowing loosening it's grasp.

I've been noticing some pretty big tracks again. The woodland creatures are waking up, and they are most likely hungry.

If the chickens are let out to browse, they must be let out in the mid morning hours and put away in the early afternoon...and still we take a chance.

Your poor chickens are probably happy to be in where it is safe. We too can feel winter losing its grip. I will be happy for spring.

I love the snow but I am sick of the cold and ice. And I am sick of the kids being sick. They need to open the windows in the shool and air it out. I had to go pick one up today. Tomorrow...more ice. But March is only days away.

The snow just looks amazing! Its starting to become autumn in our part of the world, things are certainly starting to change.

What makes a print like that? Foxes? Raccoons? Badgers? All of the above? :-)

Yes, what kind of print is that? Mountain lion? I hope not!
