Got out on a small hike early this morning after coffee. This is a small wilderness reserve area on the edge of my town. About 95 acres. Oak Woodland by WOODSDEVIL posted Oct 17, 2020 at 2:52 PM Portola found about 60 natives living here when he passed through in 1769. Sometimes blackened stones from their campfires wash out of the ground after a rain. the ground is littered with shell fragments from clams and shellfish harvested for 13,000 years and countless generations from the nearby bay. I came across this track on the walk: Track in the sand. by WOODSDEVIL posted Oct 17, 2020 at 2:52 PM I *think* it probably belongs to a Bobcat. Small, about 1.5" diameter, round profile, round toes. Different than the usual canine tracks tracks left by the `Yote Dogs that reside here part time. Those dogs are funny. One day I was stalking quiet in these woods and kept hearing the slightest movement behind me in the Oak litter. I'd look and see nothing. Finally after a while, a Coyote broke and ran past me. he'd probably been watching me and curious what this silly human was up to. great stuff for sure!
