Day 19: #rogertorypetersoninstitute Cutter and I took the trail in reverse, just trying to see things from a new perspective. It was also an effort to stay as dry as possible on this wet day. We lingered under the heaviest canopy, avoiding the rain, but occasionally getting pelted by large drops as the wind shook the rain that had gathered on the upturned leaves.
Out to the right, I caught movement and at first I thought it might be one of the many squirrels that Cutter found so fascinating . Then I saw her, standing still, but eyes locked on our movement. She blended in so perfectly with the color of the trees that surrounded her. With each blink of my eyes I had to find her again because she seemed to move between trees. She never bounded away, but rather just melted into the forest colors.
