I was hiking down a section of the AT and looked over and saw a baby raccoon. I didn’t think much of it until about 10 minutes later when I realized it was right behind me following along. For about 20+ minutes this baby raccoon was no more than 10 feet behind me. Eventually it stopped and walked back into the woods. I pulled out my camera to get a picture and it turned around and looked right at me. This was one of those rare moments on the trail where you really feel connected to everything around you.
