Pictures: Today is a loin, I am sad to say this is likely the only way I will ever see one and it sadden me a bit seeing this loin in such a small space. Again please forgive the fence for the photos, I wish I could have been looking at this loin from much farther away with no fence, I am sure we would have both like that better. The keepers were moving this one from one area to another (likely for viewing) as best I could tell, and why the keeper went next to the fence I don’t know. The sounds coming from the loin told me they were too close. Mind you, I know nothing about these animals, just thinking aloud.
Pictures: My friend and I went to the Out of Africa wild life park and here are some shots from that. Today’s pictures of animals are unfortunately behind fences😦 I am going to have a few of these. What are these animals you ask …? Sorry I don’t know, things went way too fast for me to keep up and take pictures too, but if someone would like to add the names in comments I’ll label them.
Sable antelope (not mature) Here is a link to Wikipedia now that I know it’s ID.
Eland (biggest in Africa). Here is a link to Wikipedia
Weather: Still got the wind but it is a very nice day even with the wind. The temperatures are golden!
Pictures: While my friend was here visiting we stopped at this roping competition and I took these shots.
Pictures: These shots of Montezuma Well. The place looks like a every day sink hole with water in it but …… ” contains a near-constant volume of spring water even in times of severe drought, amounting to approximately 15,000,000 US gallons (57,000,000 L).” That is a lot of water going in and out of the that hole every day. Not good for drinking sadly. Give it a read for the above link, it is interesting.
Weather: Windy and rain, I guess it’s our turn!
Pictures: A couple of pictures from Montezuma Castle that my friends and I went to today.
Weather: It was completely beautiful day.
Pictures: White Crown Sparrow, a picture I took while in Kingman, AZ and another Say’s Phoebe Shot. Neither of these shots where taken very close but I still like them.
Exercise: Took a walk this morning, about 3 miles is my guess.
Old Friend: I got a friend that is coming to the area that I met not long after I started RVing. I worked with him at an RV park, stay at his place, and kept in contact with and he is also a photo bug! It is always good to see those kind of old friends, I look forward to it.
Weather : It is nice but still a bit windy.
Update; Enjoyed my day with my friend.
Pictures: Couple shots out the front door.
Weather: I can’t remember this much wind in AZ but I am here later than I normally am. I have talk to others that think it has been unusually windy too. It is a pretty nice day other than that with temperatures about mid 80s.
Exercise : I walk near 4 miles today and partly up a mountain, good exercise for an old dude.
Pictures: The Say’s Phoebe is trying it’s best too built a nest on the lip of where my RV hooks up to the 5th wheel hitch, I keep taking the nesting material out but the bird is persistent! I can’t let it get established because about the time it does I’ll be moving on with the RV, if it was not the case I’d let her have her nest😦
Pictures: Say’s Phoebe and another Brewer’s Sparrow.
Weather: Got couple of warm days going for now but then it will be just right in about two days😉 So says the old dude!
Exercise: The long ride up the hill the other day has got the knee hurting a little so I will slack off a bit.
Pictures: These folks flew by this morning.
Exercise: Not much, I have been lazy today.
