City of Rocks

Mark and I went for a quick trip to ID and drove home the long way...50+ miles of dirt road through City of Rocks National Preserve.

Wild Horses

I finally got to see some mustangs roaming free.  In Grand Junction, CO, the BLM has a management area called Little Book Cliff Wild Horse Range.  It is open for viewing, just needed to get there.  What a great excursion for the day.

I found two bands of 4 horses.  For the most part I stood still, in fact they started coming close to me at one point, so I stepped off the trail into the river to watch them run by.

To avoid being too heavy on photos, here's a link to a few more:  Wild Horses, 16 Mar 14

Bear River - Swan Day + More

So today was Swan Day at Bear River Wild Bird Refuge.  They offered a behind the gates tour...thank you, thank you, thank you.  We had a 3+ hour tour out to part of the refuge not usually open to the public.  Tundra Swans, Snow Geese and Pelican.  Plus ducks, gulls, herons, and eagles.  What a great day!









I then went to drive the auto tour and got treated to a display by a male sandhill crane.  I think he thought I was a rival...Boy can they jump!
