We often call this critter a bob cat.
|Big leaf maple -- Acer macrophyllum|
We are full into autumn now. Cold nights, lots of rain, some frosts (but not too many yet) and wind. The leaves have turned and have mostly fallen. It's the dark, gray days of November. As I am leaving for a three week plus trip to India and Nepal next week and will be enjoying hot weather there, I am trying to enjoy the damp and the dark of autumn in the Pacific Northwest. The old "bloom where you grow" thing, I guess.
It's a little easier to really enjoy it when the sun shines, but that doesn't happen much....
One good thing about losing all the leaves off the big leaf maples is that my view of the Stillaguamish River is more extensive.
