It was a beautiful warm sunny spring day on Barn Bluff in Red Wing, MN. I was hiking up the south bluff trail when this lovely red fox popped out onto the trail. The fox paused for a minute to look at me before trotting off. I wasn’t sure if it was male or female but, I figured it was a parent because it was carrying a mouse in it’s jaws. Seeing this charming creature thriving in it’s habitat gave me great joy.
