Hiking today, I came upon… a fox! Lovely small kit fox, all dusty golden, with a hint of black at the tops of their slightly oversized ears and fluffy tail. I’ve seen bobcats on the trail before (hello cousin!) and plenty of deer and turkeys, but this was the first fox, and I feel lucky and honoured to have caught sight of one.
(No picture to share, unfortunately — I don’t bring my phone on my hikes, so when my hand went instinctualy to my pocket there was nothing there :P)
