You all may remember that last winter (2015-16), I had trail cameras pointed at a bear den. A sow chose the den as hers for the winter. She gave birth to two cubs , a black male and a brown female, in late January. There was little activity, aside from a re...

Sunshine and Snow!
The sun woke me out of a deep slumber this morning, shining through our east facing bedroom windows. I opened the door onto the deck, and I saw that hummingbirds were devouring our sugar water. I suspect that feeders helped these tiny birds survive this sto...

Post-Migraine: A rejuvenating post from our desert days
I am finally emerging from my worst migraine and GI event in about a year. I got too confident in my body, and I pushed the limit on what I can eat. I learned my lesson the hard way. I've spent far too long lying in bed with the covers over my head. Althoug...

No Place Like Home
On one of the first evenings that we were home from the desert, we got a double treat. We saw the elk herd near our house during the "golden" hour before sunset when their fur glowed gorgeously! This young bull watched us for a while as he chewed and walked...

Faster than a Speeding Labrador - A Mountain Lion
Shyla may be a fast and graceful runner... But no animal around here can come close to the sprint speed of a mountain lion. One came through our area last night, feeding on a deer who he'd killed a couple of days ago. He appeared at dusk. And approached the...
