Rocky Mountain Wildlife

On our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park a few weeks ago, we saw an amazing number of wildlife. The elk were everywhere, and the chipmunks were so cute and tame! I’ve wanted to see a moose for some time now, so when we ran into a group of pedestrians with cameras alongside the road, I was ecstatic to see a moose grazing in a field. We encountered a few mule deer, a snowshoe hare, and squirrels, too.

Check out yesterday’s post: Scenes from Rocky Mountain National Park.

Photo of the Day: Mama and her Joey

I loved watching this sweet mama kangaroo and her joey (in her pouch) resting in the sunlight. Believe it or not, I didn’t even have to zoom in to get this photo – I was actually that close. One of my favorite parts of Tanganyika Wildlife Park was petting the kangaroos. Check out my other photos from Tanganyika if you haven’t seen them yet.

Photo(s) of the Day: Exotic Animal Interaction

A couple of days ago I posted photos of a cheetah and a giraffe from Tanganyika Wildlife Park. I had to share some photos of my husband and me at the park too, just so you could see how interactive it is! Maybe it’s just because I love animals so much, but this was one of the best times I’ve had in quite a while. The animal feedings were a bit pricey, but it was worth it for the experience. More photos to come of the animals, too.

Photo of the Day: Up Close and Personal

One of the best parts about Tanganyika Wildlife Park was how close we could get to the animals, like this giraffe. I love that I was close enough to see the veins in her ears!

Correction: Yesterday’s photo was a cheetah, not a leopard. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I typed that!

Day 324: Insomnia

We really like our new place. The only downfall: raccoons in our attic. All the scratching, running, jumping, chewing, wrestling, and chattering keeps me up at night. On Sunday maintenance caught this guy in a live trap in our attic. (Can you keep a secret? I was in tears when I heard him trying desperately to get out of the trap for hours on end.) Poor guy … I wish they’d just fix the roof so we don’t have this problem all winter.

P.S. Since this is Thanksgiving week, I’m going to post 7 Day of Thankfulness, beginning with Monday’s photo tomorrow.
