Upon arrival, the photographer, Elizabeth, followed the trail of tiny footprints leading out into the heart of the preserve. On her way Elizabeth photographed small grassy trails, possibly of gnome construction:
|Subtle grassy trail off of main path.|
After settling under the boughs of preservation pine trees, Elizabeth prepared for a long wait, camera at the ready. Fortunately, she did not have to wait long. After a few minutes, she heard quick footsteps, and occasionally a grunt, and soon a grey capped fellow came into view.
|He-Gnome, Dubbed "Chuck"|
Elizabeth followed Chuck through the preserve at a distance and snapped some
And Elizabeth also managed to shoot a video of chuck frolicking and laughing to himself.
But Chuck quickly waddled from view, and Elizabeth started back to the preserve service building with her photographs. But she saw a flash of red in the brilliantly green pines.
A She-gnome (AKA "Mrs. Gnome") was bumbling about and eating clover and talking to herself.
