Look what came today!
I've got my work cut out for me this weekend. I can't even remember what I ordered, let alone where I thought it would all go. Fruit bushes, that much I remember!
There was no time to open the box today, however. We were too busy down at the stream.

We came home good and muddy:
We'd forgotten to bring our field bags with us today, so we sketched the tracks from a photo later:
We knew these tracks--dog and raccoon. But we've been frustrated by attempts to identify other tracks we've found using the books I have on the subject. Any recommendations for good track identification guides?
