Reminiscing about Being on the Road

I took a look at my drafts and found this written in October 2017. Not sure how I didn't publish it, but it's worth a read! This week included the Minnesota Education Association (MEA) days, October 19th and 20th. So, I loaded up my car, and Kenobi and I hit the road in the early... Continue Reading →

What are you doing?

While dreaming of our Optimum Road Trip, we're still out on our walks and the trails in the neighborhood. While capturing this young Mallard family, this Red Finch had his eye on me only a few feet away. After his departure, we continued on to capture more neighborhood critters along the Haun Trail and the... Continue Reading →

Making It Happen

It's time. What seemed to be a catastrophe is really an opportunity. Time is now on my side to tackle not the Ultimate Road Trip, but the The Optimal U.S. National Parks Centennial Road Trip.¬†Yes, this one was created by Randal S.

The Butler Wild Flower Garden and Bird Preserve is located within the park and is surrounded by all the trails, so you get to see some more exotic birds while on the trails, too. Dogs are not allowed in... Continue Reading →

Albino Squirrel

On a longer walk today, Kenobi and I had to stop every once in a while so he could cool down. That leftover snow really does come in handy. It took us longer than usual to get to the Bass Lake Preserve, but I was lucky enough to capture this lovely creature: This is an... Continue Reading →

A Year Ago

Last year, on April 16th, these are the creature that were in our neighborhood: And we were walking along the Greenway to and around Lake of the Isles. The isles in this lake are a bird reserve, so you can catch sight of a wide variety in the trees around the lake, too. I look... Continue Reading →
