It’s fun to spot animal tracks in the new fallen snow. Wildlife is all around us, but we don’t always get the chance to see it. Footprints in the snow share a story of their presence and activity.
“The future lies before you, like a field of fallen snow;
Be careful how you tread it, for every step will show.”
The weather was perfect this past weekend for a drive to Reelfoot Lake. Every time we go, there is always something beautiful to see.

With all the noisy distractions going on in the world right now, sometimes it’s nice just to retreat to a quiet bench in my backyard to watch the goings-on of the gray squirrel family.

A few shots from a recent trip to Reelfoot Lake State Park.
“Five frogs are sitting on a log. Four decide to jump off. How many are left? Five, because deciding is different than doing.” ~Unknown
While out for a walk on our country road, I suddenly came face to face with a startled rabbit. He was frozen in his tracks and was sitting like a statue with one eye intently gazing at me. Clearly, he had not expected this encounter. After sizing each other up, I proceeded forward, and the rabbit took off like a shot.
“Courage is facing your fears. Stupidity is fearing nothing.” ~Todd Bellemare
“Hello Rabbit’, he said, ‘is that you?’
‘Let’s pretend it isn’t,’ said Rabbit, ‘and see what happens.”
~A. A. Milne
