Today Kish and I decided to get in touch with nature at our spring break destination. And what better way to do so that to take a nature hike and try to get a glimpse of the elusive local wildlife?
These cute critters are hard to find, and almost as camera-shy as the mythical Sasquatch. Fortunately, some careful hunting allowed us to take a rare photo of this species, which typically tries to avoid any and all human contact. After luring this plump little fellow with an acorn, we were treated to the pleasant spectacle of him cavorting and gamboling in the virgin wilderness with his furry tailed friends. This must have been what life was like back when this area was not despoiled by resort developments and the depredations of modern civilization!
We’ll always treasure the photo of this friend in the forest and look forward to sharing it with our friends when we return home after this year’s wonderful spring break.
