This morning, K and I headed out for our mini-hike, following a trail from our land into the forest. As we walked, K sniffed the ground so vigorously, snorting loudly, that she made herself sneeze. Then, she resumed sniffing, and it looked as if she focused on particular spots that would fit the step length of a middle sized animal like a coyote or bobcat.
Indeed, our wildlife camera showed lots of travelers on our path, starting at about 9 PM last night when a coyote visited our clearing. Then, around 4 AM, several coyotes left our clearing to head into the forest.
