This is the time of year when many different creatures are active. This means lots of them are crossing back and forth on the entrance road — squirrels, snakes, lizards, etc. For those driving onto BFS, please PAY ATTENTION and drive SLOWLY. Someone hit and killed a squirrel today around noon and left it in the middle of the road. I would really appreciate if that doesn’t happen again. Lots of service people and deliveries up here, so more likely that and I’m trying to send emails to these folks as well. We lost a juvenile king snake last year the same way.

The ground squirrels, rather than simply running away from vehicles, appear to simply head back to their home entrances at the danger of an approaching vehicle, often darting in front of you as you approach. The western gray squirrels, which are far less numerous, are much slower by comparison, yet also hang out on the roadway or just off it and will run forward as you approach them, eventually veering off. I would really like not to see any of these get killed by motorized traffic.
