hey where's the snow?212 viewsearly March, 2007...along track and tower trail in Alqonquin Park...'difficult' conditions due to lack of snow. We chose to stay on the land trails as many creeks, beaver dams, lakes were already wet and too slush for fun pulling. Thats a black plastic sled from Can Tire with haul bars made from white plastic plumbing pipe. Great on twisting, turning hiking trails.

Squirrel tunneling towards bird feeder194 viewsAbout 30cm of powder snow have made it impractical for the squirrel to bound across the lawn to reach the seeds below the bird feeder. So s/he tunneled towards it from the hedge in the back ground. There are two "air holes" (right and bottom right) pushed out from underneath, but no tracks leading away from those.
