Be Vewy Vewy Quiet ....

We had our first snowfall last weekend. It's always so beautiful -- all the dirt and downed leaves are covered and animal tracks are so much easier to see. The overall feeling is softness and quietude.

We went for a walk through the woods and saw plenty of these:


It's funny because we never see any rabbits, just amazing amounts of tracks. I thought Elmer Fudd was going to show up any second. I wouldn't have been surprised.

Xena stuck her nose in plenty of tracks, but she seemed unsure as to what had left the tracks. I'm not sure what she would do if she actually saw a rabbit. If she decided to chase it, I'm sure the rabbit would be safe. Xena is not a speed demon.

Yes, snowshoe hares! I wish I would actually see one once in a while.
