Sunrise yesterday found us on the ski bus headed north. The sun was warmly rising over the city.
We have no snow left at home, but there were drifts across the trails at Highland Nordic near Duntroon, Ontario.
Sharp eyed Églantine saw these lichens growing on the side of a tree. I could not see them, at first, even when she pointed them out. She did the photography for these as I seemed to be semi blind from the bright snow.
Later, I did find these tracks in the snow that appealed to my sense of design. I am not sure what animal made the tracks. Églantine suggested a mouse. I was thinking of something larger like a chipmunk that had come out early. Any ideas?
