Nanuq and I went out this afternoon to do some snowshoeing and to watch some of the racers in the Yukon Quest (I'll post some Yukon Quest pictures tomorrow).
While we were out, we saw a lot of animal sign in the snow. There were lynx tracks and hare tracks and a myriad of small rodents. Though a little interpretation may be required, it always amazes me how much those tracks can tell us about the life of an animal. Weave all those tracks together and you've got a fascinating but fleeting record of a story about competition and survival.
Here are a few pictures I took during our snowshoe. What do you read into them?
