Munson Creek, April 9

It was a surprise last week to find that it’s already possible to hike most of the Munson Creek trail, although there are still some stretches that are still covered with snow as this stretch is.

Tracks and scat show that the trail is quite actively used already by deer, elk, moose and at least one wolf that left this track (for size reference, the distance from the rear sight on the pistol to the tip of the barrel is six inches).

In another week the Trilliums should be in bloom, but for now, color is still provided by the moss along the stream.
