Looking back, it appeared Big Foot was close on our heels!
Though mild today, the wind is strong and these fir trees are bending with each gust.
As we approached, we saw tell-tale dark speckles on the snow. We knew what that meant.
The snow was littered with the bodies of bees who did not survive the winter cold.
Fortunately, many did survive and were out today flying in the fresh air.
Hubby's snowshoe design worked great and we were both very impressed. He is set now to apply the finish. When he mentioned this, I immediately said "Id like mine painted bright red!" He, of course, was thinking of a natural stain with a marine varnish to waterproof the wood. Oh....that works too...
The snow is melting rapidly in the mild weather we've enjoyed this weekend. Here's the shed today. Contrast this with a picture posted here a week ago to see how much the snow has gone down.
