Vole tunnels in the snow - Fairbanks - December 2016

I went tromping through the woods today. We received about 15 inches of fresh snow in the last couple of days, followed by winds last night that strewed snow, leaves, branches and what-not around.   I came across these depressions in the snow, snaking across the trail.   It took me a while to recognize them as vole tunnels from which the wind had scoured the tops off.
