Over just one day in the Oregon countryside, we saw these animals:
A brindle-brown fox trotting through a new-cut field of hay.
A tall, thin jack rabbit with loooong ears and legs racing through a stand of fir trees (it reminded me of Hester from The Golden Compass).
Coil upon coil of garter snake sitting on a warm patch of brick. He lifted his head and glared at us as we came close (pic to come later).
A small herd of deer munching grass on the side of the road.
About ten million cows.
