Aleutian Fox

If she could speak what would the question be? At first she hid from me behind a rock... then she became intrigued... I wonder how close she has ever been to a human? I am sitting cross legged... she was so close I could smell the saltwater on her fur.

 

She calls the edge of Nikolski Bay on the Bering Sea her home... it's on the island of Umnak which archeologists say is the oldest continuously inhabited place on the planet.

 

I call it a magic place.
