Critters, big and small, capture everyone's curiosity and are often the reason folks venture to our parks.  Chipmunks, Squirrels, and Deer are usually easily spotted, but Bears, Mountain Goats, and others are more elusive, wary of humans and their presence.  Again, patience, and luck in the wilderness and more remote locations has blessed me with a few very memorable sightings.

Please enjoy and if questions, please ask!
