No, the mystery is not why is our hu-dad so far behind on checking on blogs. That is clear – he has a lot of busy-ness to attend to this week. He promises to get caught up really, really soon.
But the mystery we are working on may require us to bring in an expert. Maybe even Dennis the Vizsla dog, because you know he never gives up until he solves a mystery – no matter how utterly strange. And this one was strange.
We were walking on the Blue Ridge Parkway after a fresh snow. In our area, they just close the parkway for most of the winter because they lack the budget for snow removal. Fine by us, because it makes for a great walking area. So as we were going up the road, no one else had been by that morning. We saw a few deer tracks, and birds, etc., but no other human or canine tracks marred our path. It was really beautiful:
But after we got to the top, we turned around and started back down the road. You know what had happened? There were tracks everywhere. Lots and lots of tracks:
We do not profess to be the expert that our pal KB is. She can look at tracks and tell you all sorts of things. We really encourage you to follow her blogs because we learn something new about nature everyday.
But we still studied these tracks and made some conclusions. Two humans and six dogs had come this way earlier. Wow, bet you are impressed with that conclusion. Now if we could only figure out who they were.
Natasha is carrying away some top secret evidence to be examined later.
