We still had about a dozen yesterday evening but that's less than half of what we've had.
A few years ago we had a nest in front of my home office window. That was a great work killer.

That's a good point about snow being a problem in early June. Hell, the northern Cascades were just getting their hiking trails clear in mid July, though Tioga was open very early last year. Glacier can be a problem in June too. If possible the trip would be best in July to even August. Better w...

We did a 2 month road trip out west last summer.
The Whitney Portal area at the base of Mt. Whitney has some pretty stunning scenery. Around 100 westerns were filmed there.
Mammoth Lakes/Devils Postpile is some great high country that's not too crowded.
Yosemite is awesome and packed - ex...

[quote]Tidal grassy marshes...sounds pretty similar to me. [/quote]
It's not. The tides are much greater so the marsh empties completely. It just doesn't support the fish population that the Louisiana marsh does. I made several trips to the GA coast and then sold my boat (we moved to GA from L...

It's a good series that became very uneven in the last few books. And the author commits a narcissistic cardinal sin. But the very end is actually perfect. ...

Baton Rouge does, yes. Of the 9 different states I've lived in Baton Rouge has the best drinking water by far.
The Georgia water I've got now comes from a lake full of rednecks with their jet skis and bass boats; and a coal fired power plan...

Yep, I love watching eagles but when the govt. tells you that you can't build a house because they have a nest that is nonsense. They are no longer endangered. If th...

The problem with that is how you define putting your kids "well being in danger". You could argue that keeping a low paying job instead of a finding a more lucrative one harms your kids in the long term. Very slippery s...

We're closing on some land today on the coast of Florida. It's next to a wildlife refuge and when we were scouting it we found a Bald Eagle's nest on the refuge maybe 100 yards from our property. It locked in the decision to buy it. Beautiful birds.

Been listening to him for a long time. Great song writer.
It's interesting to see him in the documentary about the life of Townes Van Zandt (Be Here to Love Me). He and especially his wife Susanna were good friends of Townes.
Since Let Him Roll is mentioned one thing Guy talks about is how...

I started it a few months ago and am early in season 2. Season 1 was good, with season 2 I'm beginning to see why The Wire is supposed to contend with Breaking Bad for GOAT.
McNulty is really on a roll now. :lol:...
