Snow or wet soil reveals what really happens in the wild. Starting last year, I began to photograph tracks in the Kamloops area. It’s amazing to learn how to identify what may have passed by. How recent the track is and the snow consistency are both important to identification. My friend had a Bobcat in his yard yesterday (more on that in a later post) and this led to getting some pictures of Bobcat tracks. Isaac hiked yesterday in back country and was surprised to see a Cougar track on top of his boot tracks on his return trip a couple hours later. He passed on a photo of this. These two events yesterday had me digging up recent photos of tracks (mostly in snow) and organizing them into a folder. I hope this folder grows in future years and I will definitely be spending more time noticing and documenting the tracks in the area this winter. Here is a sample of tracks so far. There are more that will remain unidentified but that’s part of the fun.
