With a lot of inspiration from In The Sparrow's Nest I decided to actually go out with the kids and not just send them out to play. We explored the snow-covered woods in our back for a full hour!
We found lots of rabbit trails in the snow, both large and small. We also looked over some of the residual damage from the ice storm. Some of the birches, mostly, are forever bowed over. A few large trees were uprooted because they were sitting in wetlands created by an underground spring.
Here is a slide show of our adventure.
I found this photograph particularly interesting. Though the tracks are imprints into the snow, the lighting makes them appear as if they are embossed onto it. It even looked that way through the view finder.
