Day Two Hundred Twenty-five

Yellow, Green, and a Great Blue

Today, my son and I walked along yet another section of the Illinois & Michigan Canal, in Rockdale, Illinois.  We saw three other mammals, two of them human bikers and the third a woodchuck, more interested in eating than in getting away from us.

He moved along the canal ahead of us until he finally agreed to pose atop a tree across the canal.
