bear paw print

this young bear tracked the trail of a man who hiked up here, a week ago.

Within each of the man's (older) footprints, there was a (recent) pawprint of a bear. The bear was quite careful about placing his feet into the footprints of the man before him. Never once did he stray.

We followed the trails until the bear's trail disappeared in the forest.

Bears have very large territories, so in all likelihood this bear was already a few mountain ranges away when we tracked *him*
