And the Snow Grew Deeper Still... 21 February 2014
When the winds blow, even the winter-hardened, skillful hunter retires to hibernation. On calm days, I venture out on snowshoes to see what stirs and to feel some connection with the bitter cold. While birds are scarce this year, otters have decorated the snow with endless trails along frozen bays skirting the open water seeps. There is life here and there in the frozen quiet calm.
