The system of greenbelt parks that follow White Rock Creek through the city of Dallas continue to support an amazingly large population of Raccoons. That is true north of White Rock Lake, and it is also true south of the spillway, as the pictures below demonstrate.

This group of Raccoons was originally attracted to this location by salted peanuts I had scattered as bait, but they continued to return night after night presumably to to feed on the native mast on the forest floor.

These photographs were recorded close to the Sante Fe Trail just north of the Tenison Golf Course.
