The high summer sun 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.
