Went to the Pinalenos to join a meetup group. I got there late and couldn't find the group, so I ventured out on my own. After cornering a skunk and trying to photograph it, I realized that my camera was not storing any images. After some investigating, I discovered that my memory card cracked and was unable to store photos. My camera doesn't store photos at all, so since it was late, I decided to do a morning hike and then to go Walmart to get another memory card.

Since I had no camera, I wasn't looking for wildlife, but just scoping out areas to hit in the future. I ended up seeing a twin spotted rattler, deer, a pair of foxes, a bunch of skunks on the road, and a black bear at close range - all of which I could have photographed, with the exception of a few skunks and deer.

After getting my memory card, I was only able to see a few more deer and a gopher snake and then took a bunch of flower pics. Pinaleno Mtns are awesome, and I should probably come here more often. At least I was able to scope out the area a bit, and now I have a plan to scope out some wildlife on my next visit.

The lesson here is: bring an additional camera or memory card.
