WOW ----- It’s been over a month since I last posted. Time really flies when you’re having fun. At least most of the time I do enjoy being here. Sure there is work, but what else would I be doing.
Most of these flowers are gone and it is mostly dried grasses and dust, especially over in the Snell CG. After all we are in a drought.
Still some mornings it is still a bit chilly.
In the morning I start off with the sweater and vest, but by the time I finish with the restroom cleaning I shed those two layers. Most days have been quite comfortable, although we have flirted with 100 degrees. Some days we get the Marine Layer in the morning. At times I can barely see a hundred feet in front of me. In the pictures below it looks like there is a lake past those trees, but it is actually low lying clouds in Halls Valley.below the camp grounds. Within an hour it has all burned away, although it is pretty while it lasts.
It is usually in the mornings that I see most of the wild life.
One day when I was out at the front entrance talking to the other Angel, we spotted this Blue Heron staring at the ground for the longest time, when all of a sudden he caught a ground squirrel and swallowed it in one gulp. Then in a little while he just flew away.
While cleaning restrooms this Blue Belly Lizard slithered up into the cart to visit with Angel.
Since it is so dry, one of the local tree squirrels visits my bird bath. The birds enjoy it too.
Last year when they had this fund raiser for Autism, wasn’t able to check out the different obstacles, because I had to monitor the restrooms. This year they put in a port-a-potty, so I was able to get some more pictures.
After all that they head out over the trails and go over a few more obstacles along the way
This where they had the Polar Bear Plunge last year. This year it was the Dirty Drawers. They had to hand over hand under the webbing that is over the hay bales. It’s all on a big tarp. The guy in the red shirt is throwing water on the back sliders. The water has a bit of soap in it to make it more slippery.
It looks like all the participant had a lot of FUN.
This last picture is of a doe and her twin fauns.
If ever you are in the area, stop by and visit. it’s a great park. In the meantime I hope that you are enjoying whatever you are doing.
Thanks for visiting
Susan and Angel
