We bundled up, grabbed the camera and headed out.
|John was first up the trail.|
|The Girls wanted to check out the frost first.|
| Along the trail we noticed a track trail|
heading off to the right.
| As we entered the woods tracks were|
everywhere. It would be a day
to note tracks.
|We came upon several obvious deer trails....|
|Ruthie thought this might be a deer bed.|
|Our trail was dotted with tracks|
|Note the cloven hooves|
in the deer prints.
|As we came out of the woods into the field we could see the frost crystals everywhere.|
|Sarah Studies the frosted grass up close.|
After warm days and cooler nights the frost crystals were spectacular!
Our path wound toward home and we noticed other trails leading off through the field. I wonder where they go? Maybe next time we'll follow and see where they lead....
But I want to get home now and record in our nature notebooks some of the wonders of the morning.
