Deer tracks in the snow

Well, it did snow last night, as I thought it might. (Although, true to West coast form, most of it melted today.)

However, during the night, we were visited by the deer that we often see around our house – and they left tracks up our driveway:

I snapped this pic early in the morning, almost in the dark, just before clearing the driveway. And then when I came in the kids pointed out that the deer were right below our house, lying quietly under the cover of some of our backyard trees.

  • can you put up a larger picture next time? I had a hard time seeing the tracks.
    Are the tracks in a straight line or are there two deer walking side by side?
    Does one deer leave a row of single tracks or 4 tracks where their 4 hooves have been?
