Afternoon Hike in the Snow at Broemmelsiek Park February 13, 2011

The temperature soared to 50 degrees and finally both Vicky and I were over our flu season and could go for a walk. We went over to Broemmelsiek Park, which we know well, but decided to walk it in opposite direction.

 We saw a lot of animal tracks in the snow. some small and then some large! the one on top looks like the delicate track of a racoon or opposum but the one on the bottom was large and looks like a Bear print! Not sure what animal would have made this track with 4 long sharp toes and a pad print in back.

 It was a nice day to be out

The snow was still deep in some spots all through the woods

The creek water was running well under the ice

Animal Tracks in the snow:
Deer, Racoon, Opposum, Coyote, ( Bear or Bobcat?)

4 miles in 1 hr 45 minutes
