foxes

*

this morning, while i stood in the door frame, about to step into the sunshine out of the yurt after tidying it up, i paused for a moment, and two fox kits slid out from underneath the building just a few feet away from me, trotting off into the trees surrounding the creekbed across from me. it was pretty much the Cutest Thing I Ever Saw.

the other night when i left the bunkhouse to walk to my tent to go to sleep, i saw two eyes lit up nearby. my headlight revealed an adult fox, crouching behind some wood scraps, ears up, looking at me as i looked back. we both stared for a moment before i gave in and turned first, leaving the fox behind me in the dark.

one of them took one of our chickens a few evenings ago.
