After the Rain

After the rain storm...

:: Luke found a milkweed pod and wanted to sail it in the puddles.  

:: The first leaves are bursting everywhere.  Just a little bit of warm rain and sun to give them that final push.

:: A fresh track that we're puzzled by.  It's large, about five inches long and looks just like an elk track.  Could it be?  A herd was established in the Chequamegon National Forest, about sixty miles north of us, back in the 90's.  I didn't think elk traveled this far south.

What are you finding in the woods right now?
