Leap day visit to Porcupines and beavers
On the final evening of February, I arrive at the High Scenic dens at sunset . . .
and find Dangerous Dan dozing at the mouth of the den, leaning against the sun-warmed rock.
I find Burdock down in one of the other rock dens. He enjoys an apple.
I stop by to check on Dangerous Dan as dusk arrives, he is eating an apple too.
It is now a beautiful starlit night. I have not actually seen Willow in a while, so head to the pond next.
The ice has left much of the pond in the recent heavy rain. Willow climbs up onto an ice shelf by the dam when I arrive. I sit next to her and admire the heavens while she admires an apple.
