That squirrel was very upset by our presence.
Look at all that lushness! What a difference a few thousand feet and some rain can make! Enjoy the perfect cool!
We used to have red squirrels in our preserve, but I almost never see them any more. The more aggressive and larger gray squirrels have driven them all out.
We're enjoying the cool temps, Scott! I belong to a writers network sponsored by HarperCollins UK, and every once in a while some Brit will complain about all the gray squirrels forcing the reds out of Britain; and the Brits blame us Yanks for it! I guess, somehow, we managed to introduce the grays over there.
