About 16 months ago, I wrote our first blog post at the White Gables Inn. Given it was a literary masterpiece and one of the most important written accounts of our generation, I’m sure you read it. But, just in case you don’t remember, it described and depicted the trail system we created on the property and highlighted some of the wildlife we immediately encountered; like the time I almost walked into a mother black bear and her 3 cubs. You can revisit the invigorating tale here. The blog post also showed some of the photos our trail camera captured within the first 2 months of setting it up on the new trail.
Well, we have been collecting photos with the trail camera ever since and thought it was time for an update. Each month we get hundreds to thousands of pictures, the vast majority of which are deer. However, they are far from the only animals that have been seen on the property. To date, the trail camera has caught deer, moose, black bear, bobcat, fisher cat, porcupine, opossum, raccoon, skunk, grey squirrel, red squirrel, and red fox. Additionally, we have photographed deer, black bears, and a gray fox with our digital camera.
Below we have included 1-2 of our favorite pictures of each animal taken by the trail camera as well as some of the best pictures we have taken with our digital camera.
