Critters

On our recent road trip to Valdez, we spied quite a few animals. I missed my opportunity to photograph a rabbit, and I absolutely refuse to post another picture of a moose, but here are a couple shots of some of the other wildlife we came across:



I've been working on a post for Scribbit about how
I'm the only Alaskan who's never seen a swan in the wild,
and then I happened upon this couple with their 3 signets.
Now I'm seeing them everywhere!



The idea of a porcupine is cute. The reality, not so much.




We came across these furry little rodents and decided to keep them as pets.




Dinner last night: chicken enchilada soup, green salad

In person, the porcupine may not be darling, but it sure is in the photo.

Very nice. I love your new pets. They are so cute.

Those two are way cuter than the porcupine, I can see why you took them home.

The ones you kept look like trouble to me. I'm just saying.

Your kids are cute, and I'm stunned at how not cute that porcupine is.
