     As the sun climbs toward summer, the it
evaporates water from the surface of beaver
ponds, exposing their muddy margins, This
provides a good matrix for recording the
tracks of animals that prowl these edges or
come out of the forest to drink. Bears are
large, dark animals that absorb and store a
lot of solar energy in their mass. Thus their
tracks are often found at the edge of these
ponds as they cool themselves and replenish
their fluids..     
     The subtle season for trackers has
arrived, challenging us to find, identify and
interpret sign often hiding in plain sight. Join
the adventure this spring and summer.
