I don’t think we were alone

As we were walking along the new Coggs Traverse trail on our way to Enger Tower I noticed what looked like deer tracks, then I noticed a large dog paw print and wondered if he could be an animal like a wolf or a bobcat, but I really couldn’t tell. Then we came to these prints. And it was hard to say how fresh they were.  There have been lots of sightings of bears in town  this summer, I don’t think I really want to meet one. (Even though I’ve written a story about what to do if you see one.) So, we turned around and went back.
