Seen on the lost mine trail
« on: August 21, 2016, 07:10:26 PM »
He appeared hardly one minute after two hikers passed me going downhill - completely disappeared off the trail one minute later. Never ceases to amaze me how wildlife - even black bears!!! - can vanish in front of your eyes.

Nice sighting, even better that you were able to get a photo.

I have a picture of one. Though I usually say, "See that blur there?  That's him!"
