Travel Tuesday: The Foxes of San Juan Island

Kudos to Max for managing to spot and photograph these elusive, adorable little islanders.

Important Note: San Juan Island National Historical Park provides habitat for many species of animals. When you visit the park, you are visiting their home. The choices you make have a direct effect on the wild animals that live there. Please take the time to follow the steps outline here to keep wildlife wild.
