Columbia River Gorge Track Added To Footprint Database
A new track has been added to the official footprint database. This Munra Point Trail print measures 10.5 inches in length, and 3.6 inches at its widest point.
A woman and her husband set out to hike the Munra Point Trail in the Columbia River Gorge just west of Bonneville Dam on the morning of May 10, 2015. It was an early hike so they saw nobody on the hike up, but passed two hikers on the way down.
The woman is interested in tracking and was looking for animal prints on the trail. The footprint was not seen on the hike in, but was found on the way out. There were few areas where prints would register in the hard-packed trail, so it seems possible that the print was made that very morning while the couple was hiking. Only a single print was found.
