Here Comes Winter!

I know you all know how much I HATE the cold season.  So, I’m sure you can guess how excited I am that it’s getting cold, and it is now December.   We are in St. George for a few days, running away from the cold.  It’s not TOO much warmer here than home, but it’s enough.

Today, we rode our bikes.  We rode a trail that was new to both of us…Church Rocks.  Seems an appropriate name for a St. George area trail.  To get there, we rode on the Coral Canyon (paved) bike path for a little way.  I liked the path and the trail both a lot.  The Coral Canyon path is the one you see along the freeway (Interstate 15) on the east side a few miles before getting to St. George.  Here are a couple pics of me from today, and one of the two of us.

The first one features the ‘Church Rocks’ that the trail is named for in the background.

In other news…I failed to post in October this year.  I don’t like to do that, but sometimes things get busy.  🙂

Bears – But Not in the Woods

Hi, loyal readers.  It’s been a while again, hasn’t it?  I really have no valid excuses.  I’d like to post more often…I just haven’t.

For the last week (maybe more), there has been a bear cruising around our neighborhood.  Over night last night, he knocked over our trash can for the SECOND time, and made a mess.

It must be a good-sized bear, because it left us some ‘gifts’, and these ‘gifts’ are BIG.  The ‘gift’ in the pictures is about 12 inches long, and about 8 inches wide.

CAUTION:  Those are, indeed, photos of bear poo below.

I’d love to see the bear, he just happens to be out and about while I am asleep.  I’d love to get some photos of HIM, not just his droppings.

 


 

In other news – Rich and I finally went for our pseudo-honeymoon.  We drove to Southern California and stayed there for a few days.  We then drove north along the coast to Portland, OR, stopping here and there.  We met up with family, and spent several days in Rockaway Beach, OR.  we drove back to SoCal, and spent more time there, and then came home.  It was a little over two weeks of travel, family, and friends.  It was a great trip.

I did take tons and tons of photos, which I haven’t sorted through yet.  Here are a couple, both taken by Rich.  The first is me, walking along the beach at San Simeon, CA, and the second is the two of us at the Smith River, right on the California/Oregon border.
