Birch Seed "Tracks"

These Paper Birch seeds fell from the catkins on the tree shown in the Jan. 17 post. The seeds gathered on the snow beneath the tree. Then, a slight breeze swept some of them into animal tracks, making it look like someone painted animal tracks in the snow. They're possibly snowshow hare tracks.

This is a big weekend coming up. Click back here for reports from bucking ice at polar explorer Will Steger's homestead tomorrow, and from the Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon on Sunday!
