Raccoons of April

raccoon tracks

I wonder if they try to match their feet to the imprints

You wouldn’t believe how big and tough they are, these mountain raccoons. Sometimes tourists mistake them for bears. The last time they came through, shoving grapefruit-sized rocks off the bird feeder to get at the seeds, they left this evidence in the mud. That was also the last time the ground was damp enough to dent. (I took this on Saturday!)

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore tells it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM. His latest endeavor is the aptly-named GODDAMN BUFFALO at Substack.
