Colorado State of Mind
We are here and entered the state 4 days ago. However, Colorado is not all that colorful...little snow and no rain.
Our first night was in Lamar at the Country Acres Motel and RV Park and we were greeted by this Scaled Quail.
Our first bird for Colorado this season. We were also threatened with quarter size hail, high winds, and rain!!! That seems to be following us around since we left south Texas.
Our next night was in Cheyenne, Wy. to avoid the high mountain passes. We stayed at Terry Bison Ranch. The next morning, we took interstate 80 and dropped down to Walden, Colorado where we will be volunteering at Arapho NWR for the summer.
We were driven around today by fellow volunteers and friends, Kurt and Virginia as they introduced us to the refuge.
Computer access is going to be rough and I better get off before it cuts me off as this is the third time I have tried to post.
Until next time...
