Working at the base of the mountains does have some benefits. Namely the wildlife that comes to visit me at my site.
This is a little cotton tail rabbit. She has been in my flower garden and in the surrounding area all summer. I noticed one day that she has a gimpy left front leg. I'm not sure what happened, but it looks to me like she might have broken it, and then it healed in a misshapen form. Anyway it doesn't seem to slow her down much.
