Trying to break mud season

A cute little creature, but a pain in the butt. This is a vole and for whatever reason, the voles had a great year. The spent the winter tunneling around under the snow, eating lots of grass.



This is what it looks like when the snow melts. Little bastards were everywhere! I think we need a LOT more fox.



This looks like yet another blurry iPhone picture. It is actually an iPhone picture of a very blurry cloud. It was as though the normal clouds got smudged with an eraser.



Meanwhile, up on the top of the hill behind our house, the snow melt leaves a high altitude marsh. Lots of little plants are starting to pop up.



But you just can't stop the people who desperately need something to do now that the ski season has ended. Hop on the mountain bike and start riding. If you look closely, you can see how hard it is to ride in a straight line when the ground is this soft. They really should wait another month or so to avoid damaging the trails.
