    Out & About: Living on the edge

    As I walked slowly along the frozen stream bank, the thin sheets of ice that stretched out over the flowing current echoed with loud cracks and knocks. I knew the sounds served as a warning not to venture out any farther, or risk going home very wet and cold. But, I had to get a bit closer to check out the tracks that I discovered on the snow-covered ice packs along the edge of the stream.
