George In Denver Goes Camping - Part II
My normal daily routine is a run in the morning, usually about two miles. I did the same during our camping trip to the Eagles-Nest Wilderness Area.
This guy/gal, this beautiful fox, followed me, ran in front of me, paced me on both days of my run to the entrance of the Piney Lake Lodge, which was about a mile from our campsite. I suspect he/she was expecting a handout, a bit of bread or meat from me that most campers probably--innocently, but wrongly--provide to him/her.
I had nothing. Just my camera. But, I remain honored, privileged to have been so close--close enough to have touched--this magnificent creature.
