Vole tunnels

 We'd lost almost all of our snow over the last week.  The streams were high and the swamps were doing their best to take up the overflow.  But it's still only February so the weather was bound to change.  We had plenty of notice - there were storm warning banners running at the bottom of the TV for two days prior.  Friday the snow came.
Here we got only a little bit - the worst of the storm went to the south.  Indy and I went out to investigate once the winds died down today. These are vole tunnels.  Voles are at the bottom of food chain (as far as mammals go) so they do whatever they can to stay hidden while on their travels.  Much easier to do when there is a foot of snow then under these mere two inches.
