The Amazing Technicolor Snowshoe

The Amazing Technicolor Snowshoe

I noticed a grain split on the toe of one of my snowshoes yesterday, so to repair it I wrapped some string around it using a whip to hold it tight. The only string I had handy was hot pink, so I spent the afternoon wearing the amazing technicolor snowshoe.

I saw a bunch of snowshoe hare tracks, as well as deer, coyote, and some porcupine chews on a hemlock. Porcupine trails in the snow are distinctive because they’re bellies carve a trail and their footprints are close together.

On the way in the sun was just setting in the western sky. The light in winter is diffused anyway because of the angle at which the sun’s rays come through the atmosphere, but the colors were especially beautiful.
