Re: Scat ID

this lady in southern california puts trailcams out behind her house and there are an amazing number of animals walking around

I think if you put a trailcam on any of the trails around here you'd catch a surprising number of animals

Re: Cast Creek Trail 773

I was up there a couple weeks ago. Yeah, not too bad. Takes a little extra time to get around all the obstacles. I remember that tree, but I didn't look close enough to see the broken chainsaw blade.
