The Kelso loop was in fine form this past Saturday between the recent bouts of weekend snow. I’m happy to report minimal slush, manageable snow depths, and beautiful weather. Hoping everyone else was able to enjoy this fresh fluff a bit as well.
Early on in the day we happened upon these river otter tracks zigzagging their way across the lake. Much like our skis this otter maximized efficiency/fun by sliding across the snow on its belly. According to the Minnesota DNR, river otters sometimes travel up to 25 miles in a weeks time, which is not so surprising after following this little guy’s or gal’s tracks for a short amount of time.
