Landing Zone

photograph of bird tracks on a beach

Animal tracks always catch my attention but they aren’t always very photogenic.  These bird prints were on a beach along the James River.  It would be impossible to identify the type of bird that left them but the deeper, wider prints in the foreground indicate the bird landed here and then hopped along the beach before taking flight.  The early morning sun provided enough shade within the prints to make them stand out in the photo.

Cyclists Yield to Hikers, Hikers Yield to Bears

Photograph of a sign indicating cyclist must yield to hikers and hikers must yield to bearsI came across several of these signs when biking a trail in the mountains of Southwest Virginia.  I suppose one must know his place when out in the woods.  I wonder, if bears could read would they be instructed to yield to anybody?
