W said he spotted a family of javelina early this morning as he was going back up the mountain to sleep. I’m so jealous! I’ve never seen them in the wild, only at the Desert Museum (a desert zoo). Thankfully he said they’re faster than they look too, because he came upon them quite suddenly.
He also said there have been a lot of bear sightings recently, so he’s hoping he gets to see a black bear again. We saw one on the mountain almost two years ago now when we had just arrived in Tucson and were living in the dorms for a week. Awesome sight. I had the camera in my hands at the time and everything, but I was so shocked and amazed that I couldn’t turn it on in time!
