Description

I didn't actually see an animal, but I saw evidence of one. There were tracks that went up and down a hill, in a zigzag. These tracks led to a den, where there was scat and also twig that were gnawed on.

This guy was busy eating something (minerals?) from the dirt road surface, and did not want to move to let me pass by.

Description from Wikipedia

The snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus), also called the varying hare, or snowshoe rabbit, is a species of hare found in North America. It has the name "snowshoe" because of the large size of its hind feet and the marks its tail leaves. The animal's feet prevent it from sinking into the snow when it hops and walks. Its feet also have fur on the soles to protect it from freezing temperatures.
