About the photo:
A little furry creature had made tracks in the snow on the west side of the MUP but it seems it never made it across to the other side.
I only took the photo since it was the first time I’ve ever seen roadkill on a pedestrian pathway and since some fresh snow was falling it must have happened less than an hour earlier (during rush hour).
(The deceased is visible in the front right corner of the picture. It is a mouse/mole/vole or other uncelebrated creature).
As a regular commuter through Bayview station, we’re accustomed to feeling like mice in an ever-changing maze so this sorta feels like we’ve stopped out one of our own who was SO CLOSE to succeeding in what so many of desire – taking the 50′ shortcut rather than the 450′ detour.
RIP little one. I’ll be thinking about you should we ever get to walk that line at Bayview before 2019.
