Seems like every year I take a walk on New Year’s Day. This year, it was with Emily and Lolli just up in the woods behind the park. We took Emily’s camera – a pocket-sized point and shoot and snapped a few shots:
(What do you think of my new hat. Terry bought it for me because I was always complaining… wishing I had a warm winter hat with a brim. This hat is perfect for me. Thanks, Terry.)
Lolli was not very interested in having her picture taken. She wanted to chase and carry her stick and dig holes, and chase and chase and did I mention chase?
There were plenty of tracks in the snow. We saw the tracks of deer, mouse, red squirrel, gray squirrel, fox, cat, Lolli, other dogs, other humans… and this:
These tracks were much smaller than other mouse tracks we saw… We wondered if they could be the tracks of a shrew? The hole was very tiny… no bigger than my finger:
I’m going to guess they are shrew prints… But, please! Correct me if you think I’m wrong!
I also love these photos Emily took of ice and crystals:
Happy New Year, everyone. May your 2009 be full of glorious nature walks!
