It’s been awhile since I’ve gone to my spot. There were a couple surprises on today’s visit. I was wandering a couple of tracks on the left near the fallen hemlock. I encountered a group of spherical scat. I remembered first thinking it was a porcupine but it looked similar to a deer, although I didn’t see any deer tracks. I had followed the path of an animal that had walked along the brook bank. I had followed the tracks to until it stopped under a log. I had seen a squirrel jumping around and had later seen its tracks. I see its tracks led to a tree it had climbed. There were multiple snow mysteries I’m still trying to make sense of. I had also seen another group of the same kind of scat.
