Sunday Snowshoe and Mountain Lion Tracks
Happy new week! Yesterday, after some snow finally fell on Saturday, we snowshoed on a beautiful trail not far from home. We were the first humans on the trail since the new snow had come down, but not the first animals. We saw numerous little tracks, and the ramblings of one very big something, who we fell quite sure was a mountain lion. You can see the tracks under the tree in the foreground of the first photo, and the second photo is a close up. See how big?! I was so excited! We did not feel in danger - for some reason we felt sure he'd been there before dawn. Also, Eddie was not with us. Perhaps we would have turned around if we were protecting our son. After a 1/2 mile or so, his tracks left the trail and we continued on...I do love being out in nature. I hope you have a great Monday!
