Winter is the best for hiking and seeing animals tracks(usually)..I always snap some shots when I see them to try to identify what the animal might have been. These tracks were a day or 2 old..with the dramatic increase in temperature the track loses detail due to melt but there appears to be a claw mark on one. Too soggy to really tell what type of animal left the tracks but I do know that heavy snowfall followed by warm weather causes soggy rainboots.
Also easy to see there are no hunters in the area thanks to the snow so we jaunted down through the woods for a change. Beats the muddy road and filthy dog paws!
