Even though the goal of today was to check on the camera the group kept their eyes open for animal tracks and signs.
On the journey today the snow under the trees was nothing but continuous snow plops which made for poor tracking. However, in the open areas there was about half an inch of new snow that showed new tracks really well. Many hare and Douglas squirrels tracks were seen as well as a weasel, which is shown below:
The camera check mission was very successful and the weather was sunny, warm, and beautiful all day long. In the coming weeks the pictures that were taken by this camera will be sorted through and we hope there are many pictures of forest carnivores among the 6,700 pictures.
Happy tracking and exploring to you all!
