snowshoe hare tracks Wrangell St. Elias National Park, Alaska.

Hey Folks

I’m still in Glennallen. Bummer!

The library has reasonable access to the internet, meaning, at least it works. So I figured I may as well post a note here.

This image is from my recent trip. I was walking along the edge of the lake here, on the ice, and following this set of snowshoe hare tracks. Out of nowhere they venture out on to the ice and do this really cool little loop, then back on course. I thought it was awesome. I know the photo’s hardly wall-hanger, but the scene caught my eye – it just seemed to interesting to wonder why the little rabbit walked a perfect circle like this .. maybe he was just exuberant about it being winter, and such a lovely day. Maybe he had just had his van fixed and was in a good mood. Maybe he just felt like walking in a circle. Whatever the reason, I thought it was pretty cool, so I took this photo.

I’m not sure when I’ll get internet access again, hopefully it won’t be too long, and I’ll post another from the winter here in Alaska (don’t go giving me this ‘it’s still fall nonsense, neither!!!) 🙂

    That is a cool photo. He certainly looked happy by his tracks! I wish I could hear what an animal is thinking, even if just for a moment. Their lives can be brutal at times, yet at other times so splendidly simple. We humans could definately learn something from them. Great shot!!
