In and Out and Up and Down


Just another mouse tunnel/track in the snow, but I think this one is a lot of fun.

In some places, the mouse was on the surface and created a trough. In other places, it must have been just below the surface because it humped the snow up into a ridge like the way a mole makes a ridge of dirt

It always makes me smile when the critter goes diving. I just get this mental image of the mouse suddenly realizing he's been out on top of the world, exposed. Sort of like if we went walking on the outer edge of the atmosphere. Oops! Time to go below.

Thinking of you yesterday morning as I went out to inspect the footprints in the yard. The opossum must have been dancing ALL OVER the yard!
