I’ve been having a great time out in the far pasture, where I did a lot of trail work. It’s almost done, a few more low branches to snip away. It’s roughly a figure eight with side loops and an open meadow in the middle to wander around in. The other day–Saturday–I went out on snowshoes for the first time this winter. And more snow is coming now, so I’ll go out again soon.
I love the wide, funny tracks my snowshoes make.
It was a brilliant sunny day, with lots of fluffy new snow that dropped from branches onto my head every time I touched a tree!
I wasn’t the only one out there making tracks–this is a deer track, across the meadow I traversed on my way home.
That meadow, across the road from us, is owned by our neighbor. We have permission to snowshoe, ski, hike, ramble, and pick apples and blackberries there. This abandoned old tractor in the middle of their field somehow looks picturesque.
This picture is taken standing in the middle of the far pasture looking south toward our house.
I love these modern snowshoes they make these days. So light, small, convenient. Hurray for winter!
