Tracking Trip Report: Quabbin Porcupines

Dan went out to Quabbin in late December, and snowshoed back to the
porcupine dens on the back side of Bartlett Hill. On the way back to
the car, he came across a porcupine up in a 20-foot hemlock.

The porcupines were mostly sticking to the area right around their
rock dens. There were very few tracks outside of a 0.2 mi radius
around the dens. Even the deer seemed to be hunkered down due to the
deep powder snow.
