We're on a road trip this week. The cat is at home, cared for by our long suffering neighbors and undoubtedly indignant about her servants' absence. She'll reappear on the blog soon enough.
However I did photograph a few mammalian critters on hikes this week.
This squirrel dodged away from us at Turtle Rocks in Wyoming.
There was more sun when this chipmunk checked me out near Estes Park, Colorado.
At the appropriately named Big Elk Meadow, this animal came out to feed at dusk.
At the Great Sand Dunes National Park, this deer was feeding among creekside brush.
