Lil Red moves through

Twenty-eight days passed before a young Bobcat came down the gulch

It didn't stop to smell the cat food -- if it did, the camera missed it.

It was still on the move the next night,

and 26 minutes later it was back, retracing its tracks up the gulch.

A wood rat and this kangaroo rat were the only other mammals photographed.

These were quiet nights at an otherwise active camera trap set where we found rodents, cottontails, and Studly making numerous appearances.
