Were rocky wall, by which I wept in vain

The landscape provides a lot of possibilities to explore with a camera right now, as there is a little bit of snow to provide accents, and plenty of ice wherever there was water (and there was plenty of water) when the cold period started two weeks ago.

Today it was once again quite late when I went for a walk with my daughter. Even though there is only 4-5 cm of snow in the forest, someone had pulled a sled while walking, and we followed those tracks for a while.

I wonder what was in the sled. Surely not a child, as the path was blocked by fallen trees, rocks etc. Maybe this was someone intending to spend the night camping in the forest. Or transporting equipment for ice fishing.
