Mouse Tracks

Another great day for the snowshoes.  Overnight temps rose to around 30 degrees before dropping into the teens for the day.  This helped the trails set-up and foot plants were firmer today than yesterday.

However, the snow beside the trails is still soft enough to showcase animal activities like mouse tracks...

or I've also been amused by how the squirrels can locate the walnuts that are buried in the snow and pinpoint dig them out.

and then scurry back to the south side base of a nearby tree to eat their prize.

Pleasant, steady 7 mile day.  My legs and hips are feeling the stress of the regular snowshoe run outings so far this winter...but it feels good to hurt like this again!
