Mike Scudday and I hiked, camped, and backpacked on Cedar Mesa in southern Utah in April. On our first full day (April 20) in the area, we hiked down Kane Gulch to explore Junction Ruin. On our way back to Kane Gulch Ranger Station, some movement in the brush next to the trail caught my attention. It was a small rabbit, probably a desert cottontail (Sylvilagus audubonii). I only had time to squeeze off one quick shot with my camera before it disappeared.
