The Other Side

Hey, nobody’s taking pictures on that side!

Here’s a rather unusually shaped trunk of one of the trees at the local park, creating a diagonal like ridge that extended well off the ground.  This squirrel used his natural mountain climbing equipment to scale up the divide and check out what’s on the other side.  Maybe the grass is really greener over there, and the nuts really larger?  Perhaps the valley is full of squirrel maidens awaiting a heroic adventurer?  Or maybe it just looks like the rest of the park, but has the advantage of being out of my camera’s range.  Even if this week’s Saturday Squirrel is merely climbing this landmark “because it’s there,” we wish him the best in his explorations…

Have a great weekend everyone, especially all you mothers out there!

    That’s a wonderful photo. The tree must be huge. It amazes me how squirrels can [almost] blend into their environment.

    • Some of the trees at the park will break my neck trying to look up at the very tops of them. The altitude doesn’t seem to bother the squirrels, though, who still jump back and forth between them like the ground isn’t a mile away. I have a few photos where the “almost” can be decisively removed from that statement about blending in with their environment…

  2. He looks like he’s trying to decide whether to continue his adventure or head home for lunch!

  6. Elsa calls trees like that escalators for squirrel hunting. 😊

    I’m a bit envious of the squirrel’s natural mountain climbing gear. They make standing on the side of a tree look so effortless!

  9. Maybe the squirrel is a mother and looking for her cards and gifts?
