Animal Tracks

northern exposures

Two below. 9 hours 4 minutes daylight.

Walking about is pure joy. I have been boasting that the darkness of the past few months didn’t affect me, and it is true. But the light has lifted my spirits and I have no wish to go backward. I’ll keep the light, thank you. I’m intrigued with all the animal tracks. There are many kinds and they are everywhere. I ask the kids what animal might have made them, but they aren’t experienced enough to be sure. This path follows a slough.

  1. Love these games….looks like two different animals. The one that veers off to the left looks like an animal that places on foot in front of the other in a single line. the one that goes to the right makes a track with the left feet and one with the right feet so the track is doubled and wider. A wolf and a rabbit?

  2. Yesterday was our first real sunny day for a long time. Today was back to the usual rain, and gray heavy clouds. My spirits went up and down like a yo-yo! I’ll keep the light too, thank you!
    Have you worked out what animal left these tracks yet? Me, I have no idea! Regards, Steve

    1. Well, one of the boys said the single track might be fox, but it is in town, so I’m thinking it could just be a dog. I’m wondering if the crossing track could be a small rabbit. It seems to me like too many prints, but it could be that a rabbit passed through more than once, creating more prints than usual.

      Oh, about the rain, I always enjoyed rain down south but it has been so long since I’ve seen rain that I can’t imagine what it is like to have a lot. Sorry your weather is running you up and down the string.

  3. Tracks that take them with me onto a journey into a wondrous world. I happily accept that invitation and thank you for letting me into that scene!
