2 Mourning Doves on My Patio!

https://youtube.com/shorts/T-68dfI9TJc?feature=share As I sat on my patio, a mourning dove flew in near me. I was surprised because they usually fly onto the sidewalk in front and then start eating from the gravel, where I sometimes sweep the nyger birdseed. They’ll eventually wander onto the patio to eat the freshest stuff! Before I even realizedContinue reading “2 Mourning Doves on My Patio!”

Sounds of a Colorado Creek

I visited friends who lived in Nathrop, Colorado, back in August 2013. This was, of course, MANY years before my YouTube channel. Ferg had driven us up to St. Elmo, a ghost town. That drive was harrowing! Imagine a spiral mountain dirt road, and yes, that road was a 2-way roadway! No guardrails, even thoughContinue reading “Sounds of a Colorado Creek”

Pouring Rain and a Clap of Thunder

I absolutely LOVE when I see a “SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING” via The Weather Channel show up on my phone! I’ll often go sit on my patio and watch it roll in. In fact, for this one, multiple neighbors also came outside to enjoy Mother Nature’s show.

Thunder, Lightning & Pouring Rain

A Noisy Squirrel

So, why was the squirrel banging his tail like that? He could have been frustrated and the tail movement akin to humans stomping. Perhaps he saw a predator and was warning fellow squirrels. Our squirrel could also have been alerting said predator that “I’ve seen you and will act accordingly!” We can clearly see thatContinue reading “A Noisy Squirrel”

Full of Finches

Fun Facts: Gold Finches are considered good luck and seem to remind humans to find joy in our lives. They don’t mate for life, but rather, for one breeding season or nesting period. They have one brood in a season. Their life span is 3-6 years. They do have predators that will eat them. TheseContinue reading “Full of Finches”

1800’s Graffiti Written in Stone at Mount Equinox Summit

“History of the Hearthstones: The fireplace hearths at the Sky Line Inn are quite unique, and to tell about them one must delve a little into the past.

Emerald Lake State Park: My Site!

Well, this was my home-away-from-home for the past couple of nights. A friend, he dog and I had stayed in a handicapped lean-to, which was her suggestion. So glad she knew about stuff like that! It was no more than 150 feet away from the bathrooms/showers and had a ramp with a railing until theContinue reading “Emerald Lake State Park: My Site!”
