As winter settles into Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, the snows gradually begin to accumulate from the storms. At first, it might be an inch or two, but as the winter wears on the snow depth increases. By the end of the winter, parts of the park can easily see accumulations well over six feet, and that’s not counting the mountains. Be that as it may, nature, and especially this red fox, still need to carry on.

This beautiful red fox was striding easily across a snowfield that was over four feet when I encountered her on a cold January morning. She glided across the deep snow as if it were just an inch, and she wasn’t slowed down, or even bothered, by the snow. Her ears were alert, and moved from side to side as she her sounds that only she could hear. Perhaps it was a small rodent under the snow that caught her attention, or perhaps it was just the whisper of the breeze. Whatever it was, it did not distract her.

She continued her fox stride across the snow, up a small embarkment, and out of sight.

A short while later another winter storm roared into the area, adding to the already impressive amount of snow. I have no doubt that the fox paid it no attention, although she was probably ready for spring.
