Red Fox

During the Couples Retreat in McCall, Idaho, we each took some time alone to reflect on the meaning of our relationships. For my part, I walked down by the river and listened to the sound of the water. When a branch cracked behind me on the hillside, I turned and saw a red fox looking at me from a distance of about 20 feet.

The fox seemed completely undisturbed by my presence. In fact, he sat calmly at the base of a tree where he stretched and yawned several times. I spoke to him and took at least a dozen pictures. We sat together for about 20 minutes, after which I returned to the lodge.

This may be the same fox we saw last year during family reunion. We stayed at the same place both then and now.

Do you think the fox is trying to tell you something?

That fox is cute. I wish I could see one up close like that.

Yeah, I think the fox wanted food. He is semi-domesticated in the sense that he has become dependent on humans. He was begging the last time we saw him. Even so, it was kind of neat to be standing so close to him like that.
