So...I caught Mr. Lizard eating my basil.  Trapping may be an option, but I love wildlife.


If you can't beat 'em... give them their own garden!

And yes...he ate it!   

(Little bastard!)

~~Arizona in the Autumn~~

Arizona in the Autumn is nearly like spring in other parts of the States.  After a painfully hot August (hottest on record), September welcomes cool mornings and cool evenings.  The coyotes visit. The birds are active. And other fun guys come to hang out....

Notice anyone different?

Headed to breakfast

Discussing escape options

Breakfast!


We all share...

Watching....

I so cute!

~~Build the Fence~~

So, I love having a diversity of critters around.  I put food out so they will play in the yard.  I put the food out, and they come in droves.

But then, when they start eating up all MY food that I plant in MY garden, I get upset.  Hmm....

And now I have to build a border fence...to keep "them" out!

~~Adventure~~

One of the most healing and therapeutic strengths I've created for myself is a sense of adventure.  You will rarely hear me say "no" to any new adventures.


My latest adventure was traveling northwest to Kingman, far north Arizona. Once at Kingman, historic Route 66 has a loop back east to the Gateway to the Grand Canyon, Williams, AZ.


Hackberry Store is on the route, and stopping in there was a "pickers" paradise.

Speaking of pickers, the stars of the cable television show, "Pickers" called the Hackberry Store.  They begged to come "pick" the place.

The store owner's response, "I'm armed and I'm not selling!"

~~A Break from the HEAT~~

"Bearizona" is located in lovely Williams, AZ, north of Phoenix. This amazingly quaint town has so much to offer, including the Grand Canyon Railroad, "The Gateway to the Grand Canyon."


Bearizona is a drive through park with divided areas for the variety of animals.


Alaskan Wolf
Sheep
Bears were relaxing, hanging out...walking across the road....basically acting like they own the place.  They do.



After you enjoy the drive through portion of the park, you get to walk through an extensive walking path that winds through acres of habitat.  You'll see baby racoons, a Canadian lynx, bobcat, piglets, turkeys, peacocks, foxes, baby bison and more!  

This cub was eating a piece of bread.





And a loud noise frightened these three up a tree....




Not certain that this guy was part of the display....
