A Meeting on the Trail

Last Monday, M. and I bought some land adjacent to our home. It came with a sort-of cabin on it. There is a long story behind the purchase, almost twenty years' worth, so let me just say that I wish the cabin were not there—and perhaps some day it will not be.

Now that we own the land, I plan some year-around camera-trapping up there. This was my first sort-of good picture: a mule deer doe meets an immature gray fox on a game trail just before dawn two days ago.

Congrats on the purchase and good luck camera trapping there. My friend Paul has an annul "burn party", and that's how he got rid of the derelict cabin on his property. Just tell your friends to being their chain saws.

Alas, much of the cabin is prefab metal. Think "tractor shed." I am trying to find a local rancher who would take it apart and haul it away to be re-assembled elsewhere.
