Alaskan Llamas

It is not uncommon for a visitor at the Nature Center to inquire about finding an unusual set of tracks while hiking the trails here, smaller than moose but similar in shape. My automatic response, naturally, is that they are the tracks of an elusive unicorn. When that doesn’t fly, I explain that there is a local couple that hikes with their llamas here quite regularly. Last week, I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with them. It was a great experience. They made good company, even hauled my tripod for me, and I certainly llearned a llot about llamas!
