Sunrise 6:53: Dish dwellers

For the first time in over a month, the female Dawn Jogger returned to what had been the DJ's Saturday ritual of jogging Big Dish the 'long way.' They last did this together on September 30 when they spotted a hawk on their way up from Alpine Road. Today's critters were surprising and welcome. The female DJ can't remember ever seeing a banana slug in oak woodland (the vegetation surrounding the Dish). They usual prefer moist forest floors, and the DJs spot them frequently when walking through redwoods. (And they are careful not to step on them.) Unlike her trip up and over the Dish a week ago, the latest herd of adolescent cattle was close enough to be photographed. As with previous herds, they already seem to be adjusting to human company.
