Oh, the Distractions!
Before I could get started on sifting through the photos and writing my text, my wife coaxed me into taking another drive in search of things to draw. We went up to Williams Loop, 11 miles east of Quincy. Still pretty brown around that area except for the very colorful graffiti in the underpass. Also saw some dippers frolicking in Greenhorn Creek. We planned to hike around for a longer while, but were stopped in our tracks, so to speak, by the footprints shown in the two photos above. We've read a lot recently about human encounters with mountain lions in our county, and decided we didn't want to be written about. So, I took a couple of photos while imagining something large sneaking up on me from behind, then headed home. Now I'm going to get back to writing about "potential."
