On Today’s Walk: Small Mysteries

These photos were taken while I was walking home from work on my dinner break (4-5 p.m.).

 

Small mysteries:

What made this hole in the middle of the walking path? And is the creature in there now? The hole is 3 to 4 inches in diameter. I’m not sure how deep. I wasn’t about to stick my hand in, or even put my face too close.

Could it have anything to do with this mound of dirt a little farther along? The photo doesn’t do justice to the height of the mound.

Last mystery — a single shoe. I’m always baffled when I see a single shoe lying abandoned.
