More plank walkers

A raccoon and her family started to cross the plank, but changed their minds and retreated. Another raccoon preferred the creekbed.

Gray foxes were undaunted by the camera. They were in fourteen out of 38 photos at the site.

A pair of them explored the creek bed.

Only one possum was seen scuttling up the trail, barely visible in the distance. I suspect it arrived via the creekbed rather than the plank.

Almost all of the deer pictures were of creek crossers.

Only this buck might have walked the plank.

You're making me homesick, Chris!

It's great to see Marin County is as wild as I remember it was.

I wonder what I did with those peacock feathers...

In the previous post...LOVELY photos. Gawd it's good to see both cats and the newts. Good show!!!
