I thought it might be interesting as a jumping off point to begin by posting some photos captured by my trail cam around the cabin. If I can’t think of anything to say, perhaps some furry creatures can get the conversation rolling for me.
I’ll try to make this a semi-regular thing so the photos are a bit more timely, but we have a nice array of initial visitors to what I’ll call the “Steep Hike Trail.” The camera is strapped to a pitch pine tree about 3/4th of the way up a steep trail that runs from the base of the property to the top of the ridge.
The turkey has just popped up in the last few weeks. The raccoons seem to be regular visitors, based on footprints I have found in the snow, making the trip up and down the ridge something like daily. Our fox friend appears to be missing his front left leg, but that may be an issue with the photograph. The same goes for what I believe is a coyote that may or may not be missing its right eye — alternatively, it winks at us.
