Super Memorial Day
It was a hot and beautiful day today so Sara and I decided to drive out the Southfork and see the sights. As she'd never been up Carter Mountain that's where we headed. Packed a Subway sandwich and altho we couldn't get up to the top as we could in the past, we found a wonderful spot on the road to see across the river to the north mountains. And just to prove that even if it's almost June, there's still snow in them thar hills. That's the large white patch behind us in this selfie from Sara's phone.
Born in Downers Grove, IL, I moved to Cody in 1981 after living in Boulder, CO for many years. As I enjoyed the outdoors and spent many weeks up in Wyoming going on horsepacking trips with friends, I decided to move here. I started Ironside Bird Rescue in 1987 after finding an orphaned Starling baby that had fallen out of its nest near my house. One thing led to another and after all these years the facility now has many different sized mews and flight barns for the exercise of raptors so they will be strong enough for release. I live in a 130+ year old log cabin with a corgi mix dog, her mother, a purebread corgi, a couple cats and many birds in a free flight aviary attached to the house. I'm now retired from a "real job". Along with rehabbing birds, I spend a lot of hours volunteering at our local Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the graphics department.
