The Rewards of Exploring

I found these down by the creek this afternoon. I was so excited! My best guess is raccoon, but I'm brand new at this. At first I thought oppossum, but when I came home I checked and the oppossum has fingers more spread and a very unique back track that I did not see down there. I also saw evidence of a clam feast. If anyone else has a different idea, feel free to comment.


I also found a track down by the spring that looked just like a cat print but it was 2" wide (not pictured here). I think it's either it's a bobcat track or a dog track without the claw marks.

Yes, can you believe I not only actually had the camera with me but I remembered to use it? I actually carry it around with me in my hiking pack now along with my binoculars, a magnifying glass, a measuring tape,a tiny journal, pen and even a cell phone. I'm afraid my pack keeps growing.
