Making Tracks

It's a glorious day. Cold - very cold, actually, azure blue sky, and diamond crusted snow. After lunch I bundled up in my warm stuff, strapped on the snowshoes, and went for a bit of a walkabout with the pups. Besides my snowshoe paths and a multitude of meandering dog trails, there are lots of tracks from tiny critters. Squirrel tracks, mostly, but there are some that are larger, probably belonging to a marten or some other kind of weasely creature. If I could find my camera, I'd photograph the tracks to try to i.d. them.
