The Alaska Range, from the Richardson Highway near Delta Junction:

These tracks appeared at the top of our driveway sometime yesterday evening. They don't look like moose tracks. They look... like... caribou? We don't have caribou anywhere in or near Fairbanks. Also, these hooves are kind of small to be real caribou. Perhaps a domesticated reindeer, on the lam?

What do y'all think?

Edit: A woman from Fish and Game has informed me that these are the tracks of a moose calf. "the biologists say no caribou in town this winter. It does happen albeit rarely"
