tracks in the snow

While making tracks of our own in the snow yesterday morning, Pono and I came across many tracks that other creatures had left. The wind had been blowing pretty hard on Saturday afternoon, and Saturday night, so there were drifts. In places the top of the snow had crusted, and if a critter walked on the crisp part, often the tracks were the most fun: perfect impressions of tiny paws. I didn't get a good photo of that particular phenomenon, but there were some other fun ones for me to share with you.

It has still been quite cold on the walks, but the advantage is that the snow sticks around longer. (I guess that is a disadvantage for people who are driving. There are advantages to being able to walk everywhere!)
