This morning was a perfect morning for a run.
The sun was shining.
The air was cool with an early fall crispness.
I dirt road on which I was running paralleled the lake which reflected the fall colors like a mirror in the early morning stillness.
It saw me at the same time I saw it.
A fox had stepped out of the woods and onto the road.
We both stopped and stared at each other for about 20 seconds before it turned and ran back into the woods.
