About ten years ago I posted about my encounter with a tanuki. Last night, biking home from work on the Cherry Creek Trail, I saw a grey fox for the second night in a row. There are numerous bunnies around so I suppose a predator shouldn't take me by surprise but it did. It felt like magic.

The creek and its surrounding wooded area is a slight green smudge on a landscape of shops, apartments and office buildings. It is lovely to bike along listening to the creek gurgling and admiring the dappled light but it never seemed untamed enough for a fox's hunting grounds. I am oddly thrilled that a fox has decided we have left enough wilderness to support wild things.
