ABC Wednesday—T is for "tracks"

This photo was taken by my daughter Katie,
when she was up in Alaska.  If I had
been hiking in the wilds and come upon
fresh evidence of a bear in the vicinity, I might
stop to take a picture.  Oh, who am I kidding?
Of course I'd take a picture.  But then I'd
be beating a very hasty retreat—which she did not!

  1. From an artistic standpoint I love the bear paw prints. The black core with the grey outlines within the grey-gradationed depression. From a safety standpoint I’m with you. I would high-tail it out of there pronto. Bears can be unpredictably violent. But! (Or is that “butt”?) Katie emerged from her peregrinations unscathed, so “Nanner nanner” on us.

    As a pre-teen I shocked a neighbor girl. I said, “Let’s play zoo. You go bear (bare) and I’ll go ape.” And what did I get for my efforts? “GaaAAarryiE!”

  2. Interesting, but I would have been running in the other direction!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Look both ways before running!


  4. Almost like a smiley face although possibly best not to trust a bear's temperament from its tracks.

  5. Looks like the bear's been gone a while, thankfully. Just read today where a man was mauled and killed by a black bear in New Jersey. I don't usually associate NJ with bears.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
