View Full Version : Fox on Mt. Adams

07-20-2008, 08:24 PM
I was laying down in the trail photographing alpine goldenrod at treeline on Mt. Adams when this fox appeared out of the fog...


She saw me and turned to run, then looked at me again, then she just stayed. I coaxed her toward me a little way then she sat down for a few minutes. I had my small lens on, not my wildlife lens, but she was only 15' away.


She stayed until the sound of approaching hikers scared her into the brush.


happy trails :)

Amazing. You coax her to come closer. Then she poses for photographs. Very nice.

I wonder if foxes venture above treeline other than to seek out human-introduced food. I doubt they have any reason to go much higher than in these photos unless there is a building that serves hotdogs.

The main food source of the fox is rodents which can be found in abundance above tree-line as a quick check of the pantry in the Obs will demonstrate. Thus the need for Marty's services.

Look at that tail. Beautiful. :cool:

Great pics. The fox that visits me will bolt at the slightest movement.
