This morning under a clear blue sky, Kodi and I set out again to explore the new wintry world - this time Kodi stuck to the now packed snowshoe trail. The woods and wetland were quiet; most animals had not yet emerged from their snow-covered dens and roosts. Only the woodland mice revealed their movements atop the fresh snow. A lone downy woodpecker worked the branch of a white pine.
