making tracks






Snowmobile tracks on the Nashwaak Stream, Fredericton, NB.
January 29, 2013.


In winter there is snow and there are ways to get around on the snow whether it's walking, snowshoeing, snowmobiling or skiing.  Make tracks.

They were out early last year.
And yes, we had snow in April.

So….get outdoors and make some tracks!  Enjoy Winter.

Thank you so much for all your visits and kind comments.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I LOVE your positive attitude about winter, Pamela! I think so many people (probably not all, though) hate winter because they have cabin fever. If they would just bundle up well and make themselves go outside for a few minutes every day I bet their attitudes would improve...maybe not totally, but a little at least. ;))

  2. Great images Pamela - much more snow in those pics than what we got here on Tues. night! Our measly 2" is melting now, but slowly as it's still below freezing despite brilliant sun. We haven't been out on the roads since Tues. but must go later today - taking Jasmin to supper then we three head to a music concert this evening.
    BTW, had hoped to see fox tracks in the garden - we had three pass by on Mon., but don't think they've come by since the snow!

    Hugs - Mary

  5. i bet - cross country skiing is such great exercise. i have always wanted to try out a snowmobile. are they easy to drive? we see the signs all the time ... wonder how difficult it is to get lost? do they have maps? or maybe use GPS to find the way? ( :

  6. Are you kidding me? It's well below freezing! LOL

    I love that photo where the sun looks like the Star of Bethlehem!

  7. I'm making tracks from the kitchen (where I just got a crockpot of homemade chili going) to the living room to read my book. It's 14 degrees below zero here this morning!

  8. What a wonderful collection of tracks, Pamela. It is impossible to travel through snow without leaving tracks, isn't it. Makes for interesting pictures

  9. Neat photos! Can you believe I have NEVER been on a snowmobile! Snowshoes are more my style.

  11. Loved all the pictures of the snow and tracks, love the doggies tromping along like they are on a mission...

  12. I love all the different sorts of tracks that you have found!! We haven't had a single flake of snow yet this winter, and I am hoping it stays that way - but we have had 10 billion raindrops! You can't see the tracks in those though sadly. xx

  13. You guys must have really warm winter jackets. It's a costly investment down here as we may go years without needing a really warm coat. This year I wish I had one as it's been so cold. We still have a few patches of snow where the sun doesn't hit and a few tracks still embedded. N o t h i n g like the beauty where you live!!!

  14. What fun in the Winter time! The images are amazing, it makes me wanna have that fun, I haven't for 30 years, as I don't go to NY during the Winter, ever now. Thanks for your sweet visit Darling.

  15. I share your attitude for winter. So much to photograph if we only take the time to engage. Like you, I enjoy making tracks too!

  16. Nice photos. We make tracks with our daily walks...the dogs make us walk them whether we want to or not.

  17. Making tracks in fresh-fallen snow is one of life's little pleasures. I love the photos and the way they prompt my memory of the 'smell of' fresh snow. Just lovely.

  18. I love the shot of the tracks of March 2013. The sky looks gorgeous and the sun so bright that I felt I needed to put on my sunglasses just to look at the photo! Have a nice weekend!

  19. Lots of fun tracks in the snow. Winter is inevitable so we might as well enjoy it.

  21. Great pictures Pamela, There is a light snow falling this morning, nothing like fresh powder to make some awesome tracks! Enjoy your weekend!

  22. My plan for the day . . . perfect timing too. Another snowstorm arrived, fresh snow for my tracks. ( Although, my tracks will get covered as soon as I make them.). I will take my camera and send you some track pics! Do you snow shoe?

  23. Nice photos, Pamela! We used to cross country ski and ride snowmobiles, but that was when we lived in MI and there was enough snow to do those things. In a way, I miss those kinds of winters.

  24. I am not much on making tracks in the snow any more, but you do remind me of sweet memories as a kid playing duck duck goose in the snow. Do kids still play that?

  25. Look at all those tracks! Every time I go outside I'm amazed at how many animals have gone through our area overnight. I love your photos.

  26. This was a great idea for a collection of photos, Pam. I made some tracks this morning. My walking practice has gone belly up and I thought I'd get a short one in before the snow came, which is falling now.

  27. Wonderful track pics!!

    Snowmobiling on the north coast island where I grew up was a main part of getting around....not so much in middle state suburbia. I miss it, to be honest. There was always a couple that went through the lake ice.....in fact I knew someone who actually went down with his and died....so it's tragic but does happen sometimes.

    The ice fishing up there is going gang busters my family tells me who still live up there.

    BTW - I would have loved to have gotten a pic of our SNOW ROLLS around here - never saw them or heard of them until this year, when the rare conditions were perfect for making them all over our yards and fields. Google "snow rolls" to know what I mean. They are the coolest things. But now there's tracks and new snowfall, etc - I missed an a perfect opportunity to share that with blogland, oh well.

    Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs.

  28. Love all of your snow images. I had thought of buying snowshoes myself this year considering all of the snow we had, but haven't yet. Stay warm. Carol

  30. I love seeing your photos of all the different tracks! It takes me back to when I lived in the mountains of NC with my Dad on some land that bordered a state forest. As soon as it snowed I was always anxious to go 'tracking'. I think I saw more bird tracks than anything else. But I did see bear tracks pretty often. I loved to hike in the snow! Enjoy your weekend my friend!

  31. I love all of your tracks Pamela. And sadly I am seeing Raccoon tracks up here, on my back porch...sigh. Thought I got rid of them by moving here.
