Night hike.

We've gotten in the habit of taking night hikes this past year. On a recent excursion we heard a lot of rustling around right at the trail head, and when I turned my head toward the sound, my headlamp illuminated 8 or 9 pairs of bright green eyes staring at me from the woods. We were a little jumpy for the rest of the walk!


  1. Raccoons? Foxes? Coyotes? Bored house cats on a night out on the town?

  2. I don't know for sure!! We are betting it was a raccoon party, though... plenty of those little fatties around here. :)

  3. A faction of ermines, I hope!
