I've suddenly been getting lots of visits from stinkers at my trail cameras. I've never photographed a skunk before the past two months. The one shown below is the classic striped skunk that most of you know.
We also have spotted skunks.
I've really needed the sunny mornings in the golden aspen groves to keep me sane. Even when I feel down and simply exhausted from the never-ending saga of my spine, I go out and seek my happiness. After shaking off a few yawns, K and I usually end up happy to be outdoors and together.
So, thanks to that good luck, we visited the grove together! You can barely see her ahead of me on the trail in the next photo.
For me, the natural world is a soothing balm for my soul. I feel so lucky to have this beauty all around me. This was the sunset that the Labraduo and I saw within an hour of my depressing doctor's appointment. Woo!
