The Porcupine Sleeping in the Tree

On this clear day, we drove to the Ouray National Wildlife Refuge and found very little in terms of wildlife 3xcept this porcupine who was a bit annoyed that we woke him up from his nap in the tree limb above the road.

The photo is not the very best from an artistic point of view, but it was fun to watch this fine specimen enjoy a little sun on a cold December day.
