An “otterly” cute sighting…

You never know what you might spot along the trails at Tryon Creek State Natural Area!

The refreshing rains brought an unlikely wildlife sighting to Tryon Creek this weekend, a river otter! Have you ever spotted one in the park before?

“To be fortunate enough to observe the otters as they frolic in the bounding, rushing water, or in a placid, mountain lake is to behold the epitome of aquatic grace and beauty among mammals” – Chris Maser, Mammals of the Pacific Northwest.

  1. Thanks again Bruce. Daria Grey & her husband George, who live on Boones Ferry at the culvert, have frequently seen otters in the plunge pool below their home. Great that they visit. Carl A.

  2. Hey Carl, just so you know, the otter photos aren’t mine. They are Daryl’s. He is both excellent and persistent in taking photos!
