nice day for a walk


Here's the family, sans Hermit who was taking the photo. Sally, in my arms, is eight weeks old and has been a part of the pack for two weeks today. She has grown so much, and she enjoyed our family walk down a logging/snowmobile trail two miles south of our house, running and romping most of the way.

It was a nice mild almost-spring day despite the snow, but maybe the snow was a good thing; we saw lots of tracks. Cottontail rabbit, snowshoe hare, bobcat, and even, I'm pretty sure by now, wolf. I posted a photo of it on Whorled Leaves, apropos to our book discussion of Barry Lopez' Of Wolves And Men. I am thrilled.

You forgot fox tracks. I'm pretty sure I see one in the photo.

Also, what's all that white stuff?

You all have the same beautiful smile and you look so happy. How cute your kids are. And Sally is just adorable.

Nice about those wolf tracks. Very cool.
