As you look at the pictures below, try to imagine what it is like when you are seeing these things and feeling and hearing nature as it surrounds you. Perhaps while you are watching a small group of deer there are snowbirds singing away as they fly from branch to branch. Picture watching a flock of turkey as a Pileated Woodpecker loudly drums away on a hollow beech tree. The sound is amazing to hear and almost unbelieveable to think that it is the result of a small bird pecking away in search of a little snack.
For a moment picture a Bobcat running full speed across in front of you as a flock of crows make all kinds of racket overhead. We find it easier to picture because that pretty much described our Sunday afternoon hike. Unfortunately the Bobcat was quicker than my camera and the turkey pictures were not as vivid as our memories. But we captured the moments in our mind and the memories will stay with us for a long time.
Such is life in the beautiful place we get to call home.
This is 2D and he is a bull to keep an eye on this year and hopefully for years to come.
Nice kiln close to Dewey Rd intersection
The love between man and his loyal friend is precious.

And we even saw several whitetails.
New and old growth. This big fella reminds us of Fred.
Just watch me eat and grow.
See why he reminds us of Fred. We'd love to find these sheds but they are apparently pretty tightly attached yet.
And we saw a few elk!
While sad to see it is a true testament to the resilience of wildlife.
We think this was a birth defect rather than an injury.
It does seem to me that you both enjoy appreciating Nature that is all around you. I have a similar interest and that is to go "snooping around" different places of History with my Pentax K100D DSLR Camera. If you decided to read what I have posted on my Blog you will find out just what I'm talking about. There are so many different places of History here and around this general area.
In my snooping around I can get myself in trouble once in a while, but I really try to avoid that stuff. There are other places that I have had to drive a short distance to see, but it's well worth it. I really have not gotten "out there" for a few months, but now that the weather here is getting better I'm going to try and take the Camera for a walk to some places that I know are around, but just don't know exactly where. The Coal Region Area that is North of here is rich in History and has so much to offer. I just have to find out where History there used to be, and what is left of it.
Remember to always ride safe on that Wing. Keep the "shiny side up and the rubber side down" is what we used to say.
