I have a half acre patch of woods that starts about 30 ft behind my house. The patch of woods is essentially a small canyon with a spring fed creek in the middle. There are several small cave openings in the hillside just across the creekbed. It’s a really peaceful place, and it is home to some endangered native flowers. In the winter, it stays a few degrees warmer than most areas and in summer a few degrees cooler because of all the 60 degree air that rolls out of the cave constantly. There are salamanders, skinks, lots of birds, a bumper crop of squirrels, and now there is a beautiful redhead living in the cave. She’s an older gal from what I can tell through binoculars and she is quite large. She has clearly lived around humans a lot as she knows to be aware but not worried with cars moving and stuff going on, she seems to understand that she is perfectly safe in my small patch of woods. I hope she has a litter of babies this year, and I hope she stays around. Maybe she can thin out the rabbits and squirrels. I will try to get better photos of her. She seems content to stay put with me at around 40-50 yards. I tried to get a better photo this morning but the good camera was dead... so all I got was crappy cell phone pics.
