Nov. 4 Gila and Apache National Forests (New Mexico/Arizona)

On Saturday, Nov 4th I drove through more of the Gila National Forest and the Apache National forest. I love this whole Mogollon Rim area that extends from New Mexico through parts of Arizona. And I found my hero Aldo Leopold had of course been here before me. I met with his only surviving daughter, Estella Leopold, at the Univ. of Washington this last spring. She is 90 years old. Of course I had to take a picture of this beautiful little grey fox that had been hit on the road. He was in perfect condition, except his eyes were bulging out, so I had to move him off the road so other cars did not destroy him.
