Right in our own Backyard!

December 9, 2014

We spent almost 7 months traveling through British Columbia, the Yukon and Alaska  – all popular areas and known for their scenic beauty and wildlife. We look at our pictures and marvel at what we saw, feeling blessed to have made the trip. We note the ways we have changed and what bubbles to the top as important these days.

We find ourselves living closer to the outdoors, picking where we will go based on the weather and what we might see in that location. In the coming year we will travel back to Alaska, to the Oregon coast, down south to Texas and even explore a bayou in Louisiana. We have developed more of an interest in the wildlife we share our space with and who would have thought we would care so much about a flock of wild turkeys?

Right now we are home in the St. Vrain State Park by Longmont. If you look out your windows on the east side you see I25 and endless traffic. But with your trailer parked right next to one of the many lakes and looking to the west you have a beautiful view of the mountains and lots of wildlife.

The view this morning from our kitchen table saw two bald eagles.

Bald Eagles – we have seen up to 6 in this tree!

Maybe what we learned over the 7 months was to be content, be more observant   and get to know even the most unlikely of God’s creatures, wild turkeys!

Merry Christmas Everyone!
