Night Tracks.

Post by Woods Walker » Wed Dec 21, 2016 11:58 pm

It snowed some days ago but fortunately I occasionally trail run areas with little activity, human activity that is. Snow gives me a window as to whats going on when we are away. I am no expert at this so could be wrong. Becasue this is snow jogging cellphone pics will have to do. Going fast and light. Well not really incredibly fast but yea know what I mean.

Night tracks. GO!

Image

I might be all alone. No humans or critters.

Image

The canvas is clear.

Image

Always thought the way Hemlocks break is interesting.

Image

Keep moving. No people but starting to notice critters leaving their mark.

Image

Maybe coyote.

Image

Getting dark.

Image

Time to crack out the kit. It's on the desk some place.

Image

There! Right by the copier! I keep such a messy desk.

Image

Image


There we go. I knew something was up! Still am the only human around.

Image

Deer but there has been melting and refreezing over and over.

Image


This isn't light from the sun low in the sky. It's the NW beam from a XHP-50. I like it!

Image

Snow!

Image

Some miles in and I am totally alone again.

Image

Image

Maybe Possum.

Image

Squirrel digging?

Image

Back tracking. Clearly this animal is big and probably stupid. Oh dang. I know who these belong to.

Image

Back.

Image

6 miles snow jog and was the only human but wasn't alone.

I'm pretty sure I've said this before but I do love your AAR photos :)

It's warm(ish) but wet(tish) here, and I've not been out for a run for a week. I'm going to have to find an hour or two tomorrow.

Same trail just the next night.

Still the only human.

Image

But 1/4 mile away what's up with this?

Image


The scraping behind one foot appeared then vanished only to appear again plus it didn't always look the same. Why? It even started to appear on my fresh tracks as well. Let me check something. Chains were slacker on one foot and a chuck of ice built up. Knocked it off and pulled the mircospikes higher. Then the scrapping stopped.

Image

Some rodent action.

Image

Guessing coyotes.


Image

Image

Maybe gray squirrel.

Image


I wonder if there are not some reds mixed in. We have them.

Image


Image

Chipmunk? Not certain.

Image

What's this? I know!

Image

ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME!

Image

The kt!
