Snowshoeing in Springfield

A clearing in the forest. One of my favorite spots to visit.

I went home (Springfield NH) for the weekend and had the chance to spend a few hours snowshoeing with a good friend and my dogs in the woods I spent years exploring while growing up there. The conditions were great for tracking, there was thin dusting of snow that fell the evening before, on top of a thick crust of snow. I love observing the winter traffic in the forest, it always seems like such a bustling place! There were a great deal of turkey tracks (saw quite few of the birds on two different occasions while out there), squirrel, grouse, mice, deer, hare, and a few coyote or fox.
