Ya see?!? In any other environment, people would read the "...melt out the pellet packages to see what's inside" and go, "EWWWwwwww!" Here, amongst like-minded individuals, RD can comment on poop inspection, and garner a collective, "Coooooool!" Gotta love hikers.

... A real surprise was finding 8 owl pellets sitting on the surface of the snow. We have unusual snow conditions: 2 feet of dry, powdery snow topped by an icy crust, which is topped with 2 inches of powder. So anything falling from the trees in the last day or so is just sitting right on the surface. Later this week I’ll melt out the pellet packages to see what’s inside! --RockDancer  From: at-l-bounces at backcountry.net [mailto:at-l-bounces at backcountry.net] On Behalf Of Jim and_or Ginny Owen

Subject: [at-l] Feeling Like Spring  We had a few beautiful springlike days last week, even one where we wore short sleeves.  Yesterday that changed.  We had sleet and snow yesterday evening, rain this morning, then more snow starting about 3 pm.   At the moment we have about three inches and it's still falling fast.  This morning I saw a flock of robins so hopefully spring will yet come.
