Snow Trek Front Crawl

image

A great day for a snowshoeing trek over to the lake.  The snow is crusty so the dogs have almost no issues breaking through to the deep snow.  Something was through the area last night ( but veered away from our property boundary. Looks like a bobcat. )

Our swimming area is not ready for the season yet (A* does the front crawl with snowshoes to demonstrate).. Nice and warm with the sun reflecting.

And our old road in has a couple of low spots..when I saw the actual ground I did not recognize it.  ‘what is the brown stuff and the dark colored snowballs?’.. Turns out it was dirt and rocks.

Fresh Tracks

Winter is the best for hiking and seeing animals tracks(usually)..I always snap some shots when I see them to try to identify what the animal might have been. These tracks were a day or 2 old..with the dramatic increase in temperature the track loses detail due to melt but there appears to be a claw mark on one. Too soggy to really tell what type of animal left the tracks but I do know that heavy snowfall followed by warm weather causes soggy rainboots.

Also easy to see there are no hunters in the area thanks to the snow so we jaunted down through the woods for a change. Beats the muddy road and filthy dog paws!
