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!

During a recent winter trip to Mount Rainier National Park, encountered crystalline skies, plus the magic of seeing a Silver Phase Red Fox for the first time.

These Red Foxes interested me because the adult and two of the kits were not red; they varied in shades of dark gray and black and reddish ochre that is known as the “Cross Fox.”
