Our old dog, that we thought we were going to lose, Simba, has really recovered! He hasn't been able to journey the trail for about a year, but is now well enough to do so. In getting there he got the muddiest feet! (The vet said his teeth were bad, but the reason he was so skinny was very old age. Well, we decided to do dental surgery anyway and lo and behold, he had all but 6 teeth pulled and had a raging infection. The "if you want to" surgery was actually a "necessary for life" surgery. He has packed back on the weight, has pep in his step, and is back to being the master of his domain.)
Probably a coyote skeleton right in the middle of the trail.
Turkey track. We'd never seen one before.
Owl on a sign coming home one night. He didn't like my flash and flew off after I got this shot.
Unusual track on the trail. I'm sure the animal is very common.
I thought I found egg halves until we looked closer. A tiny animal skull and pelvis. It was so fringy and delicate.
Interesting texture on the inside.
Geese have been feasting on fields, in large numbers, for about 3 weeks.
A herd of turkeys apparently wanders our trail too!
