This morning dawned calm and cold. It was peaceful in the wake of yesterday's storm.
Out on the trails today, it looked as if no animals had moved around since the storm so my unattended wildlife cameras probably would have yielded nothing if I'd checked them. I go through periods after storms when I have no idea where the wildlife has gone. I do know that the animals don't follow their "usual" routes or visit their "usual" haunts when the snow is deep.
A familiar landscape looked alien whenever the wind carried billows of snow into the air. On my way home, all trace that I'd ever skiied or ridden my bike over that same path had been erased by blowing snow. The wind managed that feat in a matter of minutes.
