Horseshoe Crabs in New Mexico

[Horseshoe crab tracks in snow] On a recent hike to Escobas Mesa, I happened upon these tracks.

"Look! Trilobite tracks!" I exclaimed. But upon examining them more closely, I saw I was wrong. They look a little like trilobites, but they're clearly the tracks of a horseshoe crab.

Either way, quite a rare find in the snowy mountains of New Mexico.
