Winter Fun

We spent some time out on our snowshoes this weekend. The snow is almost up to Liz's hips. See all those depressions in the snow up ahead of her? Those are white-tail deer beds. Our woods are full of animal signs.

We spent some time trying to identify some of the animal tracks. We found 2 big animal dens with either coyote or red fox tracks all over it. It is hard to tell the difference when the tracks aren't fresh. We've heard coyotes and seen a red fox, so know both are nearby.

We stopped for a cup of tea.
Cheers, dahling.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Your snowshoe walk looks like it was such a nice outing. My children and I love looking for animal signs when we are out walking in the winter, too.

I love the snow heart!

One morning last week I glanced out the bathroom window and saw a fox hauling a squirrel in it's mouth. Another afternoon there were eight deer hanging out in the greenbelt at the edge of our yard. Your post inspires me to put the baby in a pack and actually get outside while the temps are above 32 this week!

Isn't it great to have that kind of nature at your back door!

Oh, how pretty! I want to try snowshoeing sometimes. It looks like fun.
