It is always so magical to cross paths with wildlife in their own environment...even if it's only a squirrel. On those rare occasions when the meeting is extra special it's hard to believe how lucky you are. This, for me, was one of those extra special "encounters." It was shot around and along the Hoh River during a 3-day car camp in May, 2017. The chance meeting occurred on our last day while hiking along the popular Spruce Trail (Olympic National Park). I hope you enjoy "The Encounter".
