Wild Wednesday … Sierra Color!

Bliss and Tasha enjoyed a day at work. 

Wild Wednesday … iFlowers

Last week naughty Sailor dog busted out of the yard and set out on a field trip. Mary and I had to split up to search for him. She took the car and went up our road to check our neighbors. I went on foot through the foothills behind our house. After covering about a mile or so over hill and dale, she texted me. He was about a half mile down the road playing with the neighbor kids. I was relieved and annoyed all at the same time and began hiking home.

It was just before sunset and the light was fading, but warm. The foothills are full of spring wildflowers. This was an excellent opportunity to shoot some wildflowers on my trek back. Excellent, except that I didn’t have my camera! All I had was my iPhone, and so phone pictures it was. They aren’t as good as the Nikon could have done, but I work with what I have. These are my iFlowers!

Forestry Friday …Forestry Institute for Teachers

FIT-1

I highly recommend this program to you if you are a teacher in California. It is a fantastic way to get hands on experience in natural resource education. Especially geared for elementary teachers. For many years I taught Silviculture at the Shasta County camp. Great program and a lot of fun. Click here for FIT!

On the Road to Montana and Back

Mary and I recently returned from a long road trip. We were on a mission to pick up our newest pack member, Phanny, while visiting our friends in Montana. We decided to make a week of it and enjoy the western sights with Sailor, Tasha, and Bliss. Starting in California, we crossed Nevada and Idaho to reach our destination in central Montana. Here’s a gallery of some sights along the way. Click on the pictures to enlarge them.
