It’s been a bit wet, even by SE Alaska standards, but checking trail cameras is a great motivator to go for a hike between the storms.
I set a camera here; a trail which has been trampled to this extent is a sure indication for lots of action.
I set another camera here to find out why this patch of ground is all torn up. I think the over hanging branch is a licking branch for the deer, and there is a lot of bear sign in the area; it will be about 4 months before they come out of hibernation.
The camera I set here monitors the intersection of two main trails and some secondary trails.
This spot is more out in the open than I prefer, but there is a main trail parallel to the downed tree, and lots of secondary trails; plus there is a lot of fresh deer and old bear scat in the area.
