Porcupine ~ erethizon dorsatum

While they used to be plentiful in this region, Porcupines are pretty scarce now. This is one of my favorite pictures from back in 2008. He was hiding pretty well, wasn’t he!

Indian Paintbrush

The flowers up in that region are showing the effects of the very hot and dry weather. Even the Indian Paintbrush were dry and turning brown. This one which was growing in the shade was the best I could find.
