These told an interesting story. The rabbit tracks ran for a short distance, then ended at the scene of a struggle. The rabbit had been caught by a raptor, probably an owl. There were long scratch marks where it kicked its feet in the fight. The ground was very torn up at the site. Unfortunately for the rabbit, it lost the battle.

Mountain lion tracks - found 7/10/98 - Humboldt Redwoods State Park, California

Black bear tracks - found 7/12/98 - Humboldt Redwoods State Park, California

I saw this bear feeding on apples in an old orchard in the park. It has a great place to live. There is an old apple tree where the apples are just beginning to ripen. It is hidden by overgrown brush so all you see is the top of the tree. On three sides, it is surrounded by dense blackberry thickets. The other side is dense brush. There is one way in - through a kind of tunnel through the brush. To get in there, you have to stoop over and you still get snagged on the berry branches. But, the bear has easy access to the creek that runs right behind it. He's got the apples and berries to eat. And best of all, the tree has a thick limb that sticks out horizontally and provides a perfect bear hammock. He's got it made! What a life!
