Tracks found by vacationers
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Alpine County
LOCATION DETAILS: near Bear Valley in the Lake Tahoe area.
OBSERVED: Only a set of tracks leading from a river into a crop of low trees. I did not follow them (being about 10 I was pretty scared). The tracks were large -- approx.18 inches and about 2 inches down in packed snow.
OTHER WITNESSES: We were having a snowball fight. I was running, fell, got up, and saw the tracks. We took pictures that day but not of the tracks...my brother thought they were faked.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Mid-morning. Skies were partly cloudy.
ENVIRONMENT: Besides the river and the trees, the ground was uneven and I came across the tracks about 100 yards from where the car was parked along the road.
