April 10, 2016. 25 degrees. Snow lingers on the crunchy frozen earth. I dress for a February hike. I should be looking for spring wildflowers, not animal tracks in the snow. Ah well…
In addition to coyote tracks, we saw tracks of deer, rabbits, squirrels, mice, fox, turkey, and more. We also heard grouse and saw deer. We visited the beaver pond and watched a goose try to swim away making tinkling noises as he broke through the ice.
There were wildflowers, though. And domesticated ones.
This in April. And in December I could have photographed violets and dandelions.
