Fresh snow. Half a foot deep and very heavy.

Fresh snow. The limbs ahead are weighed down with snow and blocking the trail. Time to back up and go elsewhere.

Cooper's Hawk. After this shot and as the hawk was literally over the trail, I was going to back up and go elsewhere. However, as I slowly lowered my camera the hawk sensed the end of the photo op and moved off to a large tree around the corner, unblocking my path. So, onward I went.
