We watched two Cascade Foxes at close range in Mount Rainier National Park; one had the dark Silver Fox coloration, and the other had the more typical reddish coloration. We watched one stalking a mouse under the snow, then pouncing on it; but we also observed the foxes scavenging in a parking lot and taking food from an outstretched hand–not a good idea!
We rose early to chase the 10 December 2011 total lunar eclipse–with success!
Hiking and photographing in autumn along the North Fork Skokomish River of Olympic National Park, where draping Usnea Lichens and Bull Trout provided beautiful details under Bigleaf Maples and giant cedars.
