When the snow gets deep in the woods, the wild ones follow in each others foot prints creating trails which crisscross the forest.
In the woods which I call home, there are many such trails which lead from feeding areas to sleeping areas. There are always stories written on the snow which, to the observant eye, will entertain the imagination for hours.
I have always groomed trails through that same forest using my little Yamaha Bravo. It is light and maneuverable allowing me to go into areas modern machines can-not follow.
The snow gets packed down by the sled and within a few hours, the wild ones are using the trail as if it were a sidewalk. Wolf, deer, moose and a host of other forest dwellers leave their footprints superimposed on the track impression of the Bravo.
This video is a rear view look at the grooming process as I traverse my forest following and being followed by the wild creatures which reside within its shelter.
