Coyote tracks, which we did not see!
All this talk of tracking reminded me of an e-mail I got a few months back from a friend of MNHC named Carolyn. She sent us some really cool pictures of porcupine tracks in snow from her trip to Colorado:
Pretty neat, huh? You can just imagine them meandering along, minding their own business. A few weeks ago I was giving my dog a quick walk at night off-leash and we saw a porcupine walking right down the street in our neighborhood. Luckily I saw the little guy before my dog - he would definitely have wanted to go say hi!
