Return to the rimrock
The caves and recesses in the rimrock were too intriguing. I decided to leave three cameras at Wind River Ranch, and Brian assured me he would check them, change batteries, or pull them, as desired.
I made a hurried hike to the bluffs with Luna the day before we left.
I left one camera at a large burrow dug at the foot of a bluff. This wasn’t a gopher burrow. It was big enough for a small bear or a coyote.
I left another at the fissure cave that Luna refused to enter.
And the third camera I left at a long overhang where I imagined ringtails playing in the moonlight.
Whatever pokes its nose in there, settles done for a long winter's sleep, or eats the camera -- you'll hear about it.
