It’s currently -4 degrees with gusting flurries. With these gusts, the wind chill temperature is closer to -20 degrees and below. Yesterday’s high was 16 degrees, with an overnight low of -4. We currently have 2” inches of snow on the ground.
I quickly hiked up the most direct route to the Cliff Top. Sunset wouldn’t be waiting on me. At the top, I walked along the exposed rock. I composed the scene. My camera made an all too familiar sound. A moment in time had been captured. Looking at the scene again, I consciously changed my perspective. What if I were a fox? How would I view this sunset? I gently nestled into the forest. I didn’t leave a trace…didn’t make a noise. I was a fox…
…a fox watching sunset.
