  Larimer County Search and Rescue volunteers teaching Man-Tracking. LCSAR laid out 11 lines of bootprints. First, draw the boot print. What to look for in a track - broken or bent grass, bruising of vegetation.

  IM002116 IM002117 IM002118 IM002119 IM002121  
  Just right of the measuring tape, notice bent grass.

  Easy to see this boot print in the mud. Tracking Stick assists in finding the next print - bottom rubber band at the heel of this print, upper rubber band at the toe of this print, and top of stick at stride length, where the heel of the next print should be. This print is right to left, orange flagging at the heel. Lunch Saturday. Aircraft fly-over of CPF 559. Cadets make the letters SOS while Cpt Schneider uses a signal mirror.
