Skunk Run

I get up early on Saturday morning to get my long run in before Real Life™ kicks in.

I was running along a trail next to Coquitlam River and I saw this vague dark object moving ahead of me. The sun had not yet risen and I couldn't make out what this thing was.  I figured it might be a feral cat so I kept my distance.

I followed this mysterious creature for about a mile as it religiously kept to the trail.

We finally got to a foot bridge with a street lamp and I could finally make out what it was.  A skunk.  Yikes. I'm glad I kept my distance.

This was the first skunk I've ever seen in my life.  We don't have them in little ol' New Zealand.

I'm still waiting to see my first bear.
