River Otter

I was hiking near the James River when I heard a small grunting sound.  The trail I was on crossed over a stream and when I looked to my left a group of 4 or 5 river otters were watching me.  They clearly wanted to cross the trail I was on and seemed annoyed I was in their way.  They stuck around long enough for me to take this photo before swimming back the way they came.

Off the High Dive

The high dive at Hungry Mother State Park in Marion, VA offers swimmers a thrill as they escape the heat.
