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!)
