Lighting was not so great during this time of day. But take my word for it, the turkey was a beauty
That's a plastic bag in the grey squirrels mouth. He looks very well fed, doesn't he?
As we were leaving, the yearling, with his tail high, started frolicking across the road. So darned cute! Wish I could have gotten closer.
What a perfect place for a racoon to live!
I'd love to go up there more often and spend a couple of hours. Such inspiration! I could see taking a pad of paper and a pen and just sitting in these surroundings to write. But it is quite wild this far up the mountain and is visited regularly by black bear, grizzly, mountain lions, cota mundi, and, of course, this time of year, rattle snakes. I feel like it takes at least two of us to keep an eye out!
