And, one more that was just screaming
to have it's picture taken...

It was a great trip! 

It would be fun sometime to have
bloggers like:
Come and see all this and then 
go back with them to see their
part of the world.
I am lucky to have all this so very close.

Monday, August 18, 2014

This week (August 12,13,14 - 2014) I got to participate in an event to honor the military. We rode motorcycles to Vernal, Ut and accepted the flag and then took it to Grand Junction, Co.
I rode in honor of 
Edward Harris
USMC LCpl Michael J. Allred, 
Navy "Otter" Charles Sare.

Rode with 5 other men.

WHAT IS THE
PATRIOT TOUR?

Every year The Nation of Patriots organizes a national effort that pays tribute to, and honors, all of America's Armed Forces - Past, Present, and Fallen. This united effort is known as The Patriot Tour.

Every year we ride for the members of our military - to show America's support, our thanks, and our united pride by passing one American Flag throughout the country.

The Patriot Tour begins during Memorial Day weekend. A massive group of riders escorts one American Flag on the back of a motorcycle to Woodstock Harley-Davidson in IL. Upon arrival, the flag is transferred to the IL escort. The very next day the Flag is taken to IN and the next it travels to MI...and on and on for 100 days, through 48 states. The Flag finally makes it full circle and lands right back in WI where it all started over Labor Day weekend.

It’s the very foundation of the American Flag and all it represents that our brave men and women in the military have stood and died defending, continue to stand and protect, and will forever fight for.

The Moose, the Old Man and a pond...

So, last Saturday evening I ran away from home and went to the mountains.

You know, "The mountains are calling, and I must go!" 

 I sneak into a Beaver Pond and sure enough there is a Bull Moose feeding in the water. I sneak up slowly and quietly moving only when he is eating in the water. I get to the waters edge but am still behind some bushes so I start to move along a log which is on the ground and also leads to the edge of the brush where I want to be.
Then and old man comes along, falls off of the log, saves his camera but scares the heck out of the moose. The moose throws his head into the air, scrambles through the pond, over the dam and poof... hes gone. The old man gets up, thinks a few things and wanders off to take photos of flowers and trees and bugs.
Some days are like that.

Raven


Notice the protective eye lid on the second image.
Officially, it is called a Nictitating Membrane.
It helps protect the eye from injury.
