My manager gave me the afternoon off (there's more of a story there, but it won't be told tonight), so I drove up Flagstaff Road and hiked up to the summit of Green Mountain. When I returned to my vehicle, I spotted something on my bumper I hadn't seen before.

I put my camera into macro mode for a closer look:

There are, of course, the usual suspects, but I haven't cornered anyone and demanded answers. Yet.

(I can't fathom any way the usual suspects would have been able to hunt down my vehicle while it was parked at the trail head this afternoon. The next best option is my employer's parking lot this morning, but I think I would have spotted it when I departed early in the afternoon. Except that I was happy to be out early, so I may not have been paying enough attention to the bumper.)

Bitscape, age 26, is a highly sought white hat hacker and an agent of
social subversion. An avid fan of salsa, developer-centric web design,
and cheesy pop music, Bitscape co-creates a world of love and
acceptance by sharing his vision. He enjoys helping low-tech firms
define their offline strategy, and he's advised many anonymous
unknowns, including the homeless on Pearl Street, escaped mental
patients, and hookers on East Colfax. As an aspiring web bum, he
applies his knowledge to a community venture, the Content Collective.
Bitscape resides in Westminster, Colorado, but may soon be moving into
a van down by the river. For speaking arrangements, don't bother
calling. Your bits will be lost in the noise.
