Snow Tracks

I find it rather odd how aligned the tracks are considering a person did not make them. Consulted xkcd, but no luck.

Any theories?

A year ago on TTaT: Splitting headache bear


  1. that is interesting. it almost looks like something was hopping along. which seems rather unlikely. very curious!

  2. It's the elusive New England Pogo Monster. Obviously.

  3. Elisabeth: I know it's unlikely but that was my best guess too... I was thinking a squirrel. They do sort of hop over the snow rather than trudge through it, and they're small enough that the holes might be made by 2 feet at a time. But it would mean they were able to land in their front paw holes with their back paws as they proceeded.

    Iron Fist: I knew I should've gotten one of those animal tracking cameras set up outside! A New England Pogo Monster would be AWESOME! They're the friendly type right? I could put on my fuzzy hoodie and socks and go say hello... sort of lo-tech Avatar style.

  4. Wow! I have no idea!

    But I love seeing tracks on fresh snow. It feels so calm!

  5. Usually, I like clean expanses of snow, but I did like these mysterious tracks.
