|Alps with a Frosting of Snow|
|The entrance to Reillanne Forest from the car-park|
It seemed like no-one had walked through the snow before us, and once we turned off the lane pictured above onto a narrower trail (the one we followed on the horses last weekend) we were suddenly walking through virgin snow.
Virgin apart from some animal tracks, that is.
What on earth does this belong to? I wondered.
Because it was interleaved with these, I came to the conclusion, rightly or wrongly, that it was the slightly mis-shapen print of a hind foot of a very large dog :
Bearing in mind that there were still no boot prints around, was I looking at the tracks of a very large dog who had gone exploring in the woods on his own, or was I looking at wolf tracks? Whichever it was, I certainly didn't want to run into the owner of those paws...
Cookie and I kept our walk short, just in case.
Wolf or dog, does anyone out there have an opinion?
