Too many pickles!

We've got whole pickles, dill spears and dill slices....enough to last us several years I think!

Bluebirds brood #2

This was brood #2 for Mr. and Mrs. bluebird. Here you can see two have already hatched with the third working it's way out. There were 3 for a time, but one day when I went to check on them, only two were left. I'm thinking this late hatching one was probably the one that didn't make it. The just left the nest a couple of days ago. I hope to see them back soon. With the two broods this year, Mr. and Mrs. had 6 babies. I may have to get another nest box for next spring.

Little Bear

Yes, those are bras you see hanging above the stage. :-)

Little Bear bar and grill in Evergreen, CO. Larry used to frequent this place when he lived in Golden years ago.

If all the bands that play there are of the same caliber as the one we heard, I could spend a lot of time there....absoultly fabulous! And for those of us that can't stay up late anymore, they have several nights a week where the bands play from 4-8 pm. Great food too! Maybe we'll live there when we retire.

I love the mountains! Although, it was very sad to see all the dead and dying trees. Still a little bit of snow up there too.
It was fabulous.

Colorado Wildlife

And the Elk come running down the mountain.
I've never seen so many vehicles stop so fast. I was on the side where the Elk were. They were so close, and a little spooked because of all the cars. I wasn't sure if they would freak out and trample us or not, what an adreneline rush! They were going so fast I didn't have time to check settings on the camera, so this is the best I got.

Birds from Colorado

Ole "Eagle Eye" Larry spotted this tiny Humming bird nest when we were packing up the bike at our motel. What a great site to see! I've been told that this is a Broad-Tailed humming bird.

A Stellar's Jay. Very vocal and active. It was hard to get a shot of this one.

I believe this is called a Gray (grey) Jay.

A Long Tailed Magpie. I saw several of thest but was not able to get ver close. Even saw one trying to pick up a dead ground squirrel from the middle of the road. They must be meat eaters.
