Black bear tracks

While birding in the San Isabel National Forest in Custer Co this afternoon I found these Black bear tracks in some almost dried mud. This is the beginning of the time that these bears spend most of their time eating to put on fat for the winter. And there are a lot of Gambel oak (commonly called scrub oak) that produce acorns and this year some of these shrubs were loaded with acorns.
I always finding signs of mammals when I am out birding. In fact, I have seen several Black bears and also several mountain lions while birding around the Canon City area.
