Rest, Recuperate, Regroup

Salida, Colorado

We found a nice little spot north of town after our Banzai run across the Great Plains.
Yes, it was wonderful to be here. No sticky humidity.  Each evening thick billowy clouds would roll in bringing even cooler temperatures, a spattering of rain and earth shaking thunder.

On one of our evening walks we came across this fellow. 
Beans showed little interest in going over to make friends.  I thought that interesting.

I was able to get pretty close (not within spraying distance I hoped) before he even knew I was there.  I had to look it up as to why.  Skunks have poor eyesight but do have good hearing and smell.
I guess my Indian stealthy stalking skills are still pretty good.

Skunks look cute but not something you would want to get on the wrong end of, no wonder Beans left well alone

That is pretty special to see a skunk!

I don't know if you want to be able to sneak up on a skunk... ;)

So enjoy following your adventures. Nice rig! Not too big or small. Glad you are OK ;)

Yeah, I love it. I should have name it Goldilocks.

Have you ever petted a skunk? I have.... a de-skunked one of course. So soft and silky.
