This limestone quarry in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan used to be one of my favorite swimming spots as a kid, but it’s been closed down and mostly abandoned for the last few years.
We came close to a Norther Lesser Anteater (Tamandua mexicana) while hiking in Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica. The pattern on it’s coat was surprisingly beautiful, and it was quick to climb a tree once it noticed us – they have terrible eyesight and walked very close to us before it realized we were standing frozen on the trail next to it! Very strong smell, almost like a skunk, so if you’re hiking in the park and smell skunk, it’s most likely one of these!
The shallow pools left behind when the waves recede leave a constantly shifting mirage of dunes and landscapes.
Thanks to my very talented cousin, Amy Stoll (https://www.facebook.com/AmyStollPhotography/?fref=nf) for putting this together!
