I’ll be down at the Oregon Dunes on a Tracking weekend Thursday through Sunday, so you won’t likely hear from me. Hopefully, I’ll have great stories and pictures upon my return. Here’s the link to the trip I’ll be on. I’m going along as the Teaching Assistant and Photographer for the trip. How lucky am I?!

In the meantime, here’s a picture of a track from two winters ago in Onalaska. Can you guess what kind of animal it is? Is this it’s front foot or back foot? Left or right? What was the temperature like when it stepped here, and has it warmed up or cooled down since then? Was this animal in a hurry? If you found this track, what sorts of other tracks and vegetation would you expect to find nearby?
