Cheryl Olson wrote on March 4: I just want to say that I saw a red fox with a white tipped tail this morning at 6:15am. He crossed the lake path near the bench by the Tripp dorm, up the hill to the dead tree (standing, but bent in half), then towards the surface parking lot. I’ve been walking the lake path since 1970 but have never seen this. Also, a loon kept watch behind the Alumni offices this morning for quite awhile. It’s good to get up early!
