Abert Squirrel at the park near our house

After surviving Super Storm Sandy in northern Virginia and leaving the east when it was 40 degrees and raining, we were pleasantly surprised to find that Flagstaff was experiencing beautiful fall weather.  High 60’s and low 70’s with plenty of sun.  We got back into the Flagstaff groove by going for a hike in our own neighborhood.  I’m always amazed at how you can get on to a narrow trail in the woods only minutes from your house.  Pictured is one of our favorite woodland creatures that we spotted near Buffalo Park.  This squirrel is unique to our area.  There is a great children’s book written about him called Rascal – The Tassel-Eared Squirrel.
