Obscure bear trail on muddy sand. Photo David Brown
   On snow the trails of animals are
usually quite obvious. In the non-snow
seasons the tracker is obliged to
concentrate to distinguish a trail from a
confusing and varied background. This
trail on the shore of Quabbin Reservoir
is an example. The random
indentations in the mud conceal the 2X
trail of a black bear hiding in plain sight.
   Come join us on a summer tracking
adventure in search of the track, trails
and other sign of the many wild
animals that make Quabbin their home.
