Muddy Tracks At Abbe Creek
Were these tracks made by a velociraptor chasing proto-marsupials who strayed into 42N country eons ago? Chances are these prints can be attributed to a Canada goose and perhaps a single raccoon. Hardened mud becomes preserved by layering dry matter, which in turn can protect tracks for years. Maybe these Abbe Creek (41.94N, 91.45W) mud tracks will be uncovered in a zillion years. Discoverers might trace the footprints to also find muddy shoe impressions cropped just outside this photo. The conclusion reached will be that the animals were scared off by a Bigfoot or Yeti. Know that.
