"'Under the snow is a whole secret kingdom where the smallest forest animals stay safe and warm.'"
Over the snow-Stop. A sound.we stand like statues carved in ice till a bushy tailed fox steps from a thicket. Tips his car to the ground. Listens... Listens.... Still listens
"Over the snow I glide, past beech trees rattling leftover leaves and strong, silent pines that stretch to the sky. On a high branch, a great horned owl keeps watch. Under the snow, a tiny shrew dodges columns of ice, it follows a cool tunnel along the moss, out of sight."
