Taking Wing

Grouse tracks and wing marks in the snow

I went for what might be one last ski up on Lion’s Ridge at Camel’s Hump Nordic yesterday. With spring coming on, there was all kinds of activity recorded in the snow. I saw tracks from turkeys, weasels, mice, bear—all going about their early spring businesses. I followed this ruffed grouse track to where the bird took flight leaving the impression of its wings in the soft snow.

Bear Tracks

Bear tracks in the woods up at Camel’s Hump Nordic!

I came across this set of bear tracks while skiing this morning up at Camel’s Hump Nordic (yup, there’s still a lot of snow up there!) I’m pretty sure I was looking at more than one bear walking in the same set of tracks—perhaps a mother and cubs?

Here’s a close up with my glove for scale. Big animal!
