It snowed — almost .75 of an inch which, as this winter is going, is pretty good. The dogs and I were out as soon as we could and were met by untrammeled snow, beautiful light and fascinating tracks.
Tracks I can’t identify — do you know?
Most of the snow is gone, but the important thing is we carped the diem and had a lovely time. Here’s the long view…

glad you enjoyed your moments of snow
Yay for snow! After a 60 degree F temperature rise, ours is gone. A white Christmas followed by a green and brown new year.
Heaven! I’ll have to visit again to find out who made that track. Fascinating. Happy new year, Martha, Bear and Teddy.
Happy New Year Tracy!❤️🐾🐾
That first photo looks like Bear had a good roll in the snow! All of our snow has melted. We’re supposed to get more in a week or so. I’m really hoping if it does snow it melts quickly as I’ll be working and the parking lot is so very far away!
Yay! Looks like your tracks have a tail involved. I can’t identify ’em from here.
Very strange tracks… but no idea.
Interesting tracks — no claws/talons on those feet! I’m so glad you got enough snow to stick, to walk in, and to roll is! We’re getting more rain tonight, and again later in the week, so hopefully you will have more snow!
I had two very happy dogs yesterday. They played all day. 🙂
I do like fresh, untrammelled snow – in moderation! 😉
It’s a beautiful thing. Personally, I like a LOT of it, but not this year, last or the year before 😦
Just a sprinkling of snow and magic x
Wonderful shots, Martha, and I’m glad you seized the day! The tracks look intriguing, almost as though whatever it was only had one foot and it was hopping through the snow! Either way, it also looks as though it could have been indulging a little too much in the old winter cheer with the wavy path it took! Happy New Year, and may 2023 bring you and the doggies the very best of everything. 🙂
Yeah — that little creature definitely has a strange way of moving… I hope someone knows what it is. I shared the photo with the people at the refuge. I wish you the best of everything, too, in your new home and world. 🙂
Thanks Martha. Hope you find out what your little visitor was. If you do, please let us know! 🙂
Could those tracks be from some human’s walking stick or cane? That could have been used as a probe, then snowed over but still follow the original probe holes. The only thing I can think of, but the path would be rather unusual. Oh — or dripping water from some sort of handle?
No there were no footprints. They are an animal, but I don’t know what. … the snow wasn’t deep enough to fill human footprints and leave tracks like that.
