Teller County, Colorado

– near Crags Campground NE of Pike’s Peak & SE of Divide, NE of Cripple Creek

"Although I never did get any exact measurements, each individual impression was approximately 2 feet long. I’m certain there was some melting and refreezing because it was sunny and mild when I was there and the last snowfall was 4 or 5 days earlier, so the tracks could have been there up to that long. Allowing for melting, I think it was very safe to estimate those tracks at at least 20” each.

The stride does not change in those conditions and it was easily between 6 and 7 feet. Even for a very large creature, I have to assume that was a downhill stride, if not jog." ...D
