chapucas in the snow

We woke up this week to a few inches of snow....a rarity in Seattle.  It was so pretty and the streets quiet as most of the city if not shutdown, at least had a few hour delayed start.

 I was surprised to see these tracks through the yard.  Wasn't sure at first, but did the closeup made me think of a raccoon and sure enough, later that day Neil encountered him again making the shortcut.  I realized later that we are the only house on the block that does not have a fence in the front or rear yard so, I guess it makes for an easy cut through.

In the lower left picture it was interesting to notice how his front paw and back paw line up when he walks...that's what threw me off at first, the tracks look more like he's hopping.
