We have a herd of elk that live in our forest and they sport an impressive set of antlers. These are shed annually, usually in February or March, and occasionally I’ll find old antlers in the woods. This one had been hidden away for a few years so it was showing some signs of weathering and animal wear – mice like to chew on them. It measures three feet long so it is amazing that these large animals navigate through the trees so well with a six foot set of antlers on their heads.
and remember what Spring will look like!
Our snow day turned out to be a two day affair. A bit of a novelty for us so I’ll do one more posting of snow.
