Out of Africa

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.

Update: Thank you (Boeta and gang) Our Rumbling Ocean For the IDs. Also, check this one Having fun with my Camera

Sable antelope (not mature) Here is a link to Wikipedia now that I know it’s ID.

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.

The sheep dog, with a bit of a attitude. Looks like it is saying “Hey, don’t even be looking at my sheep!”

Exercise I only took a short walk today, about 2 miles.

Weather: It is going to take a cooler path starting tonight, but still too soon to go any farrier west just yet, so I may have me some cool nights. Not sure how cool it will be, my weather apps varies greatly. Today is beautiful with a little wind.

Cooler Weather but still better

Weather Change: The cold front has gotten to Lake Havasu but it is still far better than all the other folks are getting throughout rest of the US. The lows here are only in the mid 40s and high all the way up to upper 60s, so compared to all the other places it is still very good. The wind is blowing pretty hard, makes for a lot of dust.

Weekly Exercise: Here is a weekly summary. Finally did enough walking to have a summary 🙂
