This was set # 254, a promising site in Marin County where fog blows in from Bolinas Lagoon.
I know bobcat kittens padded this trail, and I know a coyote dropped a few dog logs right where the mystery creature hunkered.
But the cam always had a problem.
This time the flash went out.
24 images were black.
Three looked like this, and only this one showed an animal.
It was 6:18 in the morning when the mystery mammal paused to sniff.
Anyone want to guess what it it?
Coyote . . . raccoon . . . wolverine . . . German shepherd . . . or just a large squirrel?
