Don and I went walking yesterday, picking our way carefully amidst icy patches on the road. Suddenly we looked down and saw — moose tracks.
Don put his size-10 snow boot right next to a pair (front hoof/back hoof) of tracks for purposes of comparison. Big mamas!
We traced the tracks up the road…
…until we saw where it jumped over a snow berm and headed off down a side road.
Besides sheer size, moose tracks are identifiable by a characteristic heart-shaped print. We’ve been having moose hanging around, so seeing prints isn’t surprising. Just fun!
