Perspective

Or more appropriately Scale . Didn't want to clutter up TMs trail report , but really liked the picture of the erratic with a walking stick ( hiking pole ) leaning against it to show the size difference.
When I can,I try to add something as well , weather it is a lighter next to tracks or whatever seems to fit that is handy.

Same rock ,same day , just different pics.

Phil, cool photo perspective!
Would that be "Bob's Rock" by any chance?

Nope , not too far from it though. "Dads rock" is just a spot on a small ledge . Small rock just the right height for a nice place to sit.

Lighter for tracks :







I believe these tracks were the same bear , about 1/2 mile away from the first tracks.. It was definitely making a straight " bee-line " to somewhere. I feel pretty sure it decided it was time for his long winters nap. Winter set in the next day and didn't see any more tracks the following weeks.

Awesome photos of the big rock! Nice overhang to keep the rain off of you.

I like the Winchester perspective too. Slightly more classy than my hiking pole.

Good sized bear tracks. It's amazing how fast they can walk. I remember one crossing my path in less than ten seconds over ground it would have taken me a couple minutes to navigate. Pretty phenomenal animals.
