fox on First

a fox pokes its head out of the storm sewer today on First Ave. west of Santa Fe

foxes are common in Baker

according to this fox fact sheet from the City of Denver, foxes rarely harm humans or pets, and they help control the population of other urban wildlife species, but foxes are better off if they don't get comfortable with people; do not leave cat or dog food or edible garbage where a fox (or skunk, raccoon or coyote) might find it; scare foxes away if they seem to hang around

Baker's westernmost residents live here

this encampment is as far west as anyone resides in Baker at the moment; it is located on the hill between Phil Milstein Park and the 6th Ave to southbound I-25 on-ramp in the far northwestern corner of the Baker Neighborhood; this spot is more or less aligned with 5th Ave., so it is not Baker's northernmost residence

under the white tarp is where people sleep; nearby are piles of bike parts and other items, some protected by tarps and some strewn down the hill into the brush

motion and stillness

a fire truck idles on Kalamath and a Union Pacific engine idles on a siding while light rail and snow flakes zip along swiftly; taken from the Bolt Factory
