Cold sunny days are perfect for a snowshoe hike.

We headed out past our bunkie and down towards the pond.

Those red ribbons identify the maple trees we will be tapping in a few months.

Looking back across the pond you can see our place up on the hill.

I was surprised to find soft spots under the snow where the ice was thin and the water seeped up onto my snowshoes. We would like to build a trail around the pond and use it to explore pond life as the seasons change. 

Just last week we watched from our windows as a fox tracked mice below the snow and marveled as he would leap and pounce catching dinner as he tracked the scents along the edge of the pond.

Our days are full of new learning experiences as we sit back and enjoy nature just outside our windows.

Hope you are well and enjoying life wherever you are.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone.
