A storm last Friday left us with a couple more inches of snow and some sparkling frost-covered trees.

This didn’t last too long after the sun hit it. You could see where the cottontails had been out early looking for breakfast.
Someone’s been chewing on my little aspen. I didn’t see any deer tracks around this, though there are plenty of deer around. At dawn this morning I was out with the dogs and saw five does tip-toeing through the backyard. The dogs were so intent on sniffing rabbit and mouse trails that they never saw them. The sight of this chewed tree made me look up at the mature aspens behind it, all of which bore similar scars.
