Mink alert in Chesnut Creek
My wife and I were biking between Gambetta and the New River along the VA New River Trail and noticed a dark object on a rock in the middle of the creek. On closer inspection this turned out to be a beautiful and seldom seen mink. This aquatic weasel was fishing around the rocks and seemed not to mind our scrutiny. So while biking and hiking keep your eyes open for unusual sights and sounds- as a "famous philosopher" once said- you never know what you are going to get !
